(L-r) Lenny Hurst shows Stacey Katzuk and Stefan Borge some of the bowls he has carved from burls during the annual Winter Market at Wells Gray Infocentre last weekend.

The burls are mostly spruce and cedar, and never taken from standing trees, Hurst says.

The market will also be held this coming weekend.
