Fruit Bowl, Salamanca Markets

Fruit Bowl, Salamanca Markets

Hobart, Tasmania

Early on in our exploration of the markets we chanced upon this beautiful bowl of wooden fruit, each piece turned from left-over chunks of Tasmanian timber. The pieces have somehow been stained and varnished and are really quite beautiful to look at. I was intrigued by them and the Handbrake was so impressed that a collection of six assorted pieces became our official trip souvenir. Timber products and fruit sum up much of the Tasmanian economy as well. Of course, then we had to buy a turned wooden bowl to put it all in, a nice blackwood piece, very attractive.
