“Wisdom Lines” is a small natural edged bowl made from a branch of a Mulberry tree. It measures 5 inches around at the top and is 3 inches tall. The name comes from the small cracks you can see in the sap wood at various locations. I thought they resembled the crease lines around a person’s mouth as they age. To me those lines show the wisdom achieved over time and the experiences that have shaped them through the years. I feel they should be celebrated and not hidden.
