These beautiful round ambrosia maple bowls are a work of craftsmanship, patience and the beauty that nature can supply. Made by Stinson Studios, these pieces are carefully and meticulously crafted to give a unique and statement making spaulting pattern in the wood. Much like Spalted Maple and other forms of figured maple, Ambrosia Maple is technically not a specific species of Maple, but rather a general description of any type of Maple that has been infested by ambrosia beetles. The beetles bore into the tree, and with it bring fungus that discolors the wood. Ambrosia Maple is considered a decorative feature which gives the wood additional character.
