Large Ambrosia Salad Bowl

Large Ambrosia Salad Bowl is handmade on a wood lathe.  This is a deep ambrosia maple bowl with beautiful grain and incredible markings. Picture the gorgeous bowl filled with apples and oranges on your kitchen table.  Great home decor item.  This farmhouse style bowl is perfect for salads, fruits, or any utilitarian need. Will make a great table centerpiece. It is food safe.  The size is 12 1/2 inches diameter x 3 inches high and food safe. Signed by Alan Adler, artist on base.

The brown markings are created by Ambrosia Beetles when they infest a tree.  As they eat through the fibers they leave behind these incredible marks.  You may notice dots in the photos.  These are holes where the beetle enters and leaves the tree.  They are creating their own art, but unfortunately, the tree will die.

Care for your Ambrosia Salad Bowl

  • Keep out of direct sunlight
  • Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
  • Do not wash with water, if necessary use only a damp cloth
  • Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster.  I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.
