Cherry Burl Wood Bowl, STEVIE, a Small Decorative Hand Turned Wooden Vessel

Cherry Burl Wood Bowl, STEVIE, a Small Decorative Hand Turned Wooden Vessel

  • Handmade
  • Materials: cherry wood, cherry, burl, wood, high friction polish

Stevie is a small cherry burl wood bowl that was hand turned on my lathe from wood sustainably sourced here in Bourbon County, Kentucky. This particular piece of cherry was from the burl of the tree. Burls are knotty growths on trees where the wood has grown in a deformed manner. The deformation of the wood as the tree grew created a unique and visually striking grain when viewed from any vantage point. Within the burl were voids and sections of decay. Hence, there are large holes and dark decayed portions of the wood, and the thicknesses of the walls change in relation to the natural disfigurement of the wood. The holes and decayed portions were left intact and add to the uniqueness of the piece.

The bowl is approximately 4" wide, 2" tall, and 1-1/2" deep and was finished with high friction polish, which brought out the natural changes in coloring, tone, and grain in the wood.

A little about me....
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I try to use mostly found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky, incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.

A+++ ALL the way! Fits most bourbon bottles but looks best on this Town Branch that I have. My fellow Kentuckian makes some great pieces. Props to Lori for the nice message and quick shipping too:), Joey
