Red Mallee Burl Cap (from Australia) with copper infill by Gerald Walters.
Size: 13 ½” x 10 ½” x 3”
It is a “natural edge bowl”. It is titled "Star Nursery" because it looks like the photos from the Hubble telescope of the cosmic gas/dust clouds that slowly merge together until there is an explosion that forms a new star. The red of the Red Mallee burl represents the cosmic clouds and the copper infill is the exploding newly formed stars.
