Daniel Valenza created this salad bowl as part of a series for a manufacturing company in the late 1960s. To create the looping design, he joined slices of black walnut and then turned them on the lathe. The grain flows differently in each section, creating subtle variations in color and pattern as our eyes move around the piece.
