Item details

Rustic Aspen Spindle Bowl 6 Inches Across...'The Yellowstone Guardian'...Marked by 'The Spirit of the Cave Bear'...The Spirit Bear left a Turquoise message in passing…Travel the woods in my presence and remember that you are alive…

Made from a trunk section of a fallen Aspen...The center of the bowl has a 2 inch hammered copper insert that has a torch fired enamel surface...The Hot Pools in the Yellowstone Caldera show colors like these in a bewildering array of form and shape.

Just off the Grand Loop Road in Yellowstone at 44.922194, -110.400568 there is a pull off that is seldom used. It is in an out of the way corner in the park...One of my favorite stops in the mountain west, it was here on a hike 2 decades ago, that the Spirit of the Cave Bear Bowl finds it's genesis. The trail winds down among the pines and is right on the cold, fast and deep Yellowstone River...A place of primal energy...Here on a giant old pine tree is where the Cave Bear left his message...Scratches like these, but higher than I could reach by at least a foot...They were new and we were a couple of miles down the trail...Funny how that got burned into the old neural network...

A new item, combining my love of lapidary, especially Turquoise and wood turning.
