Although 8 lbs lighter than my largest Hand Carved Marble Bowl at the time of carving, Mother of Pearl, I feel as though Coracle never-the-less projects a striking, nay formidable display of strength and endurance.

Much effort went into removing the huge amount of stone that formed the center of the rough block, for this is one deep and wide bowl.  But I think anything less would have fallen short for a bowl named after such a durable inland watercraft.  Such was my ancestor’s dependence upon this simple assembly of carefully woven twigs smeared with pitch that with it, either by paddling or strapping it upon their backs, they managed to navigate the numerous winding rivers, tidal estuaries, and vast marshes of a Europe dominated by dense forests and treacherous bogs.
