Black Walnut Slice Bowl
This Large Black Walnut shell bowl is 12 x 12 x 6 inches and would make a nice centerpiece for your in-shell nuts. It is finished with resin. The bowl shown has 134 center slices and half slices filled with resin as feet. This is a made to order item. It will take about 3 weeks to finish each unique bowl. Making items out of Black Walnut shells is an old American Folk Art. The Black Walnut tree only grows in the United States.
The Black Walnut tree only creates the nuts every two to three years. Each fall they are harvested as they fall off the trees, cleaned and cured for three weeks before slicing or cracking for the nut meat. The nut meat is healthy and is very flavorful. To use in cooking, use 1/2 cup of nuts instead of one cup of the more familiar English Walnut.
These bowls will only be available as long as raw materials last. Some years, I may have to wait until the next harvest is ready.
