I purchased two yarn bowls, one for me and one for my mom. They are absolutely beautiful works of art. My main problem with generic bowls on Amazon is that all the reviews say that the yarn slot is not sanded. That is not so for these. The slot is so smooth and yarn glides right out. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase and it was well worth the money.

About

Hand Turned Wood YARN BOWLS & Home Appointments. Great Selection of Styles in Sizes from Small to XXL Plus

I have always enjoyed art and the beauty of simple things found in nature we see every day. All of nature is art if we look deep enough and express ordinary things in a different way than we are used to seeing it. Growing up in rural Pennsylvania, I started making things from wood, and then experimented in painting and different mediums through school. During this time I had an avid interest in the evolution of humans through time and the functional items they created and used.

I began turning wood in my mid-twenties and shortly after had to give it up because life got too busy. When I sold my lathe I promised myself that one day I would buy a bigger lathe and return to the hobby I once loved. Now that I'm retired, that day has come. Now I spend many hours watching nature’s hidden beauty come out in the grain of various types of wood.

My creations reflect the designs of whatever culture and period I may be interested in at the moment, creating many different types of wooden vessels that used to be hand-made from other materials in order to hold liquids and staples. The bowls and vessels are portrayed as art that blends the shapes of old pottery with the beauty of finished wood.

After studying the woods natural color, makeup and grain pattern, I usually start with a basic design in mind. However, during the turning process I often alter the style of the piece in order to showcase a particular area of interest the wood reveals. I prefer not to do several bowls of the same design at once. Life should be simple, not production work. Whatever comes into my head is what I do –that’s what makes the work fun...

I hope you enjoy the exposed beauty of what is too often thrown away to decay as much as me. It’s great when a gallery wants to display my work and a bonus when folks want to purchase pieces for a special gift or personal enjoyment. Enjoy knowing that this gift to mankind was not ground into mulch!

    My artwork consists of lathe-turned wood that replicates the pottery of indigenous cultures of the world while combining the natural beauty of wood grain. I enjoy creating functional bowls for needlework and, display pieces when time allows.

EASY-CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR HAND-TURNED WOOD

DISPLAY PIECES have been given a final coat of museum grade wax, which will resist fingerprints and staining. Over time an occasional light buffing with a quality furniture wax will maintain the beauty of the wood.

*FOOD SAFE PIECES have been finished with walnut oil and/or beeswax. After food service, rinse your wooden bowl or plate with mild soap and warm water. Never put in a dishwasher or microwave. Let it air dry and wipe with a coat of Butcher Block Conditioner (available at most big box stores) or walnut oil. *Please note, we do not have any Food Safe pieces listed in our shop at this time.
