Padauk with Pedestal Base Christian Nyberg Emberbowl

Padauk with Pedestal Base Christian Nyberg Emberbowl


Emberbowl - a handmade charred wood vessel from Christian Nyberg.

Starting with hardwood board - in this case padauk - Nyberg utilizes wood embers to burn a bowl-shaped indentation into the surface of the board. He carves it out and repeats the process, finally putting the whole bowl into the fire, letting the heat and flames dictate the final shape. After the bowl is burned (and sanded up to 600 grit) it is then washed, removing all remaining loose char. The black coloration that is left lies within the grain of the wood. The bowl is then oiled and waxed with products from Walrus Oil. As a final touch, waxed red cotton cord has been woven through small holes in the wood.

This natural wax finish is dry food safe, perfect for uncooked grains or fruit display. If the bowl gets wet, wipe off as quickly as possible. Liquid on the bowl will bead up on the waxed surface, however if left for long periods of time, may raise the wax. This can easily be re-waxed and subsequently concealed. As brass naturally oxidizes with air exposure, detail elements may naturally patina over time. Brass feet and disks should occasionally be polished with a polishing cloth to retain their high-shine finish.
