Many years ago my brother went to Portugal, and he brought me back a simple piece of raw cork, which is the bark from the Cork Oak tree. I kept it for years, not knowing what to do with it. Thanks to the COVID lockdown and a large collection of wine bottle corks, I decided to clean it all and lacquer.

So its a Cork Bowl, in both senses: a Bowl for Corks, and a Bowl made of Cork.

I've found another bag of corks, so soon I'll be adding them! And the task never stops as long as wine bottles have real corks!
