Bark edged vessel

The piece stands about 41/2" tall.
The timber for this vessel is unknown, but was taken from part of the buttress to root system
When I parted the base from the stock, the small part of the foot fell away
I wasn't going to through it out, after going through so much, and used Epoxy to hold the two parts back together...

If you double click on the picture you will see a staple that is embedded in the wood, It's in the dark patch in the middle of the bowl, as I was turning the piece it was nearly to shape when I hit the staple with the chisel. the grain was that different, that I refused to stop turning it, on the inside there is only the middle part of the staple showing, so I ended up regrinding the chisels around thirty times...
It was worth it..
