Most of these wood-turned bowls are formed on the lathe a process where a rough piece of wood was mounted to the lathe, then ’turned’, a method of creating forms almost the reverse of a potter fashioning a piece of clay on a wheel, but here a piece of wood spins and unwanted material is removed with sharp tools until a pleasant and suitable form is achieved. Any works in this gallery can be custom ordered.
