15” Round Maple/Ambrosia Bowl
Ambrosia maple wood is characterized by beautiful designs, created when the Ambrosia beetle bores into a maple tree. The ambrosia beetle’s markings are surrounded by the maple wood's smooth grain and light or medium brown color. The ambrosia beetle symbolizes transformation and good luck. Each bowl is a unique masterpiece of nature.
Peterson bowls are sustainably sourced, upcycled, and handcrafted in New England.

Spencer Peterman is always on the lookout for fallen trees rotting in the woods. He gets excited about this kind of stuff. So do his customers. Hidden in those fallen trees — especially the ones covered by moss and dirt — is wood disfigured by the beginnings of decomposition. Turning that wood on a lathe produces strikingly unique bowls, perfect for your home.
Apply mineral oil once a month to maintain the natural beauty of the wood, except to products with our Driftwood, White Pearl, and Sea Glass finishes. These bowls are made with an acrylic food safe finish and should not be oiled. Our mineral oil has a beeswax base that adds beauty and protection from everyday wear and tear. Beeswax conditioners help prevent wood from drying out as well as from absorbing too much moisture. Prolonged exposure to water can cause damage; please do not submerge in water or place in the dishwasher. Common mistakes include letting old fruit and vegetables rot at the bottom of a bowl (this may stain) and putting a bowl/board in the oven.
