Description

This medium flared wooden bowl has been hand turned from seasoned splated Chestnut, the small hollow foot, thin wall and dramatically rising sides give the bowl a floating quality.

The beautiful brown patches and dark brown lines in this piece were caused by spalting which is the result of fungal attack when the timber was ‘green’, this fungus is completely harmless once the wood is dry.

Approx dimensions:

170mm in diameter and 75mm high with a wall thickness of 3mm which makes it very light in the hand (62gm).

Finish:

This bowl has been finished with cellulose sealer and wax.

  • I am a self-taught wood turner designing and creating pieces by blending my knowledge of the formal discipline of engineering and the craft of wood turning. I am a chartered mechanical engineer, but have always had a passion for working more artistically with wood. I was introduced to woodturning in mid 1990s by my father who was recovering from illness and had decided to try his hand at the craft as a form of therapy. Through the early somewhat experimental days helping my Dad, I realised that wood turning offered a unique way to express myself outside of the relatively straight lines generally associated with convention cabinetwork. I work mainly with native English timbers and prefers wood with lighter subtle grain, such as Sycamore or Beech, which allows the form of my pieces to be clearly seen. I also work occasionally with exotics from sustainable sources when a more striking grain or contrast of colour is required. I have recently started to experiment with spirit stains which sink into the wood and allow me to add bright colours to my pieces without obscuring the grain. Most of my work is sold through local galleries, but I am also available for commissions.
