This birch bowl has a natural edge. In the foreground the bark has been compressed by a limb growing out of the tree.

Natural edge bowls, also known as live edge bowls or wany edge bowls retain the original surface of the tree trunk as the rim of the bowl. The term live edge is only applicable where the bark has been retained.
