Dublin Viking Bowl in Black Walnut
This Black Walnut bowl is another of my own variations of the wooden Viking bowl they uncovered in Dublin, Ireland. I have included a photo of that 1000 year old bowl.
Black Walnut wood is a domestic, non-endangered species (juglans nigra) native to North America. It is distributed throughout the Eastern US and Southern Ontario.
The piece is signed by the artist on the bottom with pyography and finished in Dr. Ray's Genuine Bee Oil, a completely food-safe mixture of beeswax and mineral oil.
