Dish in a beautiful piece of elm, which is rarely dull, but this piece has some really nice patches of burring (the result of random growth over a wound in the tree). It's big enough for a fruit dish or suitable just as a display piece. The underneath is finished with a definite base section.
To prevent the colours from fading do not stand the bowl permanently in direct sunlight. The finish of the bowl is carnauba wax which is non-toxic and hard wearing. Any cleaning should be done with a damp cloth followed by immediate drying. If so used, the surface will become mottled in time especially from the waxes carried by many fruits. In that case, the surface should be sanded with a very fine abrasive (eg wire wool 0000) and then coated with any cooking oil applied with a paper towel and left to dry for 24 hours.
