This bowl is one that was made by the photographer over Christmas from a tree that was blown down alongside his  studio during Hurricane Maria. In contrast to the imported imported gift items offered for sale on the Bay Front, this bowl is 100% Dominican – including the beeswax that he has used to accentuate the tree’s distinctive grain pattern and colouring. The photo was contributed by Roger Burnett.
