Box Elder, also called Ash Leaf Maple, is the softest of the Maple species. The marvelous red coloring in this bowl is the residue left by a beetle which takes up residence in the Box Elder tree. The seasonal rise and fall of the sap in the tree carries the red coloring through the tree. The finish is non-toxic for contents, but it is intended to be a decorative rather than a functional piece.
