This stunning oval bowl has a 1" rim inlayed with Mother of Pearl, Solomon Island rosewood and black ebony. 

Carved from Solomon Island kerosene wood (cordia subcordata).

For the mother of pearl inlay, the artist cuts a piece of shell to fit the space, then cuts it into tiny pieces, files each one to create the pattern, and then puts each individual piece in place using custom putty.
