Clean, sharp shape. No stain or paint. I turned a semi green ash and dried the bowl slowly for weeks. When it was down to 10% humidity I turned it again to get it even before doing a controlled burning process. Then brushed it with the grains to get a enhancing and nice touch. Got it clean with compressed air before a food safe oil was applied. The high temperature gave it a nice slight oval shape. H 7cm W 24cm.
