Spalted Magnolia Bowl

$450.00

Wood by Jay Morse
(16.25 in. x 8.75 in.)

“The wood for this spalted magnolia bowl came from a tree in the Miramar neighborhood of Jacksonville, FL that was being taken down for safety reasons. Spalting is any form of wood coloration caused by fungi. Although primarily found in dead trees, spalting can also occur in living trees under stress or even in thriving trees. Spalting produces unique coloration and patterns in the wood. Zone lines, dark dotting, winding lines and thin streaks of red, brown and black are interaction zones in which different fungi have erected barriers to protect their resources. Most of the spalting fungi do not produce the mycotoxin necessary to cause human harm. There are exceptions, of course, but in general wood decaying fungi do not represent a threat to humans (there is a big difference between a mold fungus and a decay fungus). As an artist, I choose a form and style that best fits the spalted wood.”
