I delivered this bowl early this morning and it has already been given out by Governor McCrory at a job creation event held in Wilson earlier today! I wish the picture was clearer, but I am thrilled to have it!
I had the brand custom made for this project according to state specs. The logo is trademarked and copyright protected and cannot be used for anything unless approved by the state first because it is the new state logo and they are putting it up everywhere! The tree in the middle of the logo is a long leaf pine.
So far I have made ~30 bowls ranging in size from 11" - 15" and I'm not certain how many will be contracted in total yet but I can tell you that it is more than 300 over at least the next year! This is my most exciting commission yet - and it's happening while I am working on a 20' x 6' solid cherry conference table - no pressure...
