Turned from a slightly spalted silver birch log, this is a small shallow bowl with lovely grain throughout. It has been finely turned to a thickness of approximately 4mm. It would make a very lovely childs eating bowl.

Size: 5 3/4"(15cm) diameter and 1 1/4" (3cm) deep.

Finished with culinarly linseed oil this bowl is safe to eat from.

How I work:
I work in England in the woodlands without electric power tools, using instead only hand tools, a foot powered lathe similar to that which would have been used in the medieval times and hand forged tools. I believe in an ethical, low impact way of working sustainably with the wood so quite often I'm using whatever wood is available to me at the time. Usually this will be freshly felled 'green' wood which shrinks on drying, giving more character to the finished work. This is as green and eco-friendly as it gets! It is also extremely rewarding for the soul.

I aim to achieve an excellent tooled finish, whilst leaving something of the character of the wood within the piece. I favour interesting cracks and knots, and like a piece of pottery, the characteristic circular marks from the turning can be seen close up.
I hope you appreciate my work, thanks for looking!
