Hand Turned Bowls
When a burl growth appears on a tree it is always the result of some kind of stress in the life of the tree; it could be stress caused by an injury, a virus, or an infection of some kind, but that stress is the only way a burl can form. It may be an ugly thing to see on a tree, but in the hands of artisan wood turner Anthony Tucci from Crimson Wood Works, beauty is what results. The variation of colors and distinctive patterns in the grain - this wouldn't be ours to behold if not for the stress the tree lived through. So when you purchase one of these stunning pieces of art, let it be a reminder of the lesson they teach the next time life gives you too much to handle. Beauty is often the end result of difficulty. Prices vary; select choice to see specifics.
