A Thing of Beauty

December 1st, 2007 Comments Off on A Thing of Beauty

My friend Akka gave me this incredible bowl for my birthday. It’s carved from the burl of a red maple tree. What a beautiful, magical thing it is.

When I brought the bowl home and took it out of the bag, it began to glow like the ring from Lord of the Rings. The light seemed to come from inside it. And my old wooden dining room table just embraced it when I placed the bowl on top.

The bowl has an energy all its own – something unique and organic and alive. It was made by a craftsman named Don Stinson from Tamworth, Ontario. Everything he makes is stunning but this bowl in particular caught my eye. I had to rush out and purchase clementines for it to hold. It’s a match made in heaven.
