Four-Tier Birch Bowl

What is it about a big chunk of wood that is so interesting? It must have to do with some unconscious attraction to unadulterated nature. Maybe that's why we like working and living with wood--a natural material that reminds us that we're part of nature too. It's familiar in a deep sense.
Well, that's all I could come up with for why I like this Four-Tier Birch Bowl from Finnish wood artist Markku Kosonen. He's got a lot of interesting and beautiful things on his website, most quite different from this bowl. The only thing that have in common is that they're made of wood.
