Nested Ogee Bowl Set - Sycamore


Price includes UK p&p.
International shipping is available. See Delivery below.

These hand turned bowls are made from a Sycamore tree that was removed by tree surgeons in north Manchester.

The bowls are a nested set, turned from a single piece of wood using a special curved tool to 'scoop' the smaller bowl out of the larger one. Truly a unique set, they are turned extremely thin, approximately 1-2 mm thick. This allows light to pass through and illuminate the grain when held up. Turned with a traditional Roman Ogee profile, the same Romans who are thought to have brought the Sycamore tree to the UK.

Dimensions approx. 285mmx60mm and 220mmx40mm.

These bowls were turned on a vintage Viceroy lathe, made in Leeds. In the tradition of pole lathe turning, the tool marks are left on the bowls, no sanding is performed, this is to accentuate the tactile surface of the wood. Turned while the wood was green (fresh) and air dried, allowing the natural movement of the wood to form the final shape.

Finished with a hand rubbed food safe linseed oil/beeswax mixture.
