Hard Maple and Ceramic Support Spinning Bowl with Pyrography

Our originally designed support spinning bowl combines the efficiency of a ceramic surface with the stability of a wide beautiful wooden base. The icy blue ceramic insert measures 1 3/4 inches in diameter, and the gorgeous hard maple wood base is 3 inches in diameter. Dave has adorned this bowl with one of his signature leaf motifs. Cork has been added to the bottom of this bowl to keep the wood from scratching other hard surfaces.  Additional photos can be found in our Etsy shop.
