Heart Of Purple


5¾” wide Purpleheart and Figured Maple bowl

The light figuring of the Maple rim provides a nice contrast to the dense, rich purple of this simple but elegant form. Purpleheart, which is native to Central and South America, comes by its name honestly. When first cut, it looks brown, but exposure to light brings out the beautiful purple colour naturally.

Figured Maple is not actually a species, but simply a description of a figure in the grain. It is not completely clear what environmental conditions (if any) cause this phenomenon, but it is highly prized by woodworkers – and wood lovers.
