Macadamia Umeke with Cover by Gordon Tang 4.25 x 6.5 x 6.5
This is a substantial bowl. I need two hands to pick it up safely, and it’s got a solid feeling.
The macadamia wood is a prized wood with a deep warm glow. The lace pattern of the wood grain provides this umeke with singular character. Though the initial appearence of this piece full of marvelous texture, this Umeke has been artfully worked to a smooth finish.
Because of the length of time it takes for a Macadamia tree to grow to maturity and the value of the nuts, Macademia wood is fairly uncommon in wood working.
