Wabi-Sabi Bowl


BY Whirl & Whittle

Pickup available at 2090 Dundas Street West

Usually ready in 24 hours

For Whirl & Whittle’s debut studio collection, Your Scars Are Beautiful, the Ottawa-based designer consciously chose unpredictable wood pieces — such as the ash wood in this piece. Based on the idea that our scars are beautiful, the rim of the bowl is charred to create a beautiful undulating edge.

Good to know: Spalting is a form of wood coloration caused by fungi. It predominantly occurs in dead trees but can also occur in living trees undergoing stress. Spalting causes weight loss and strength loss in the wood and yet is sought by woodworkers.

PLEASE NOTE: This item is made-to-order with lead times being approximately 2-3 weeks. Due to spalting on these woods, the pattern and grain will vary significantly from piece to piece. Those pictured show some of the variation.
