These hand turned bowls are made from a Beech tree that was removed by tree surgeons in Manchester. Turned in a style that was traditionally used for drinking ale from, however they work just as well for porridge, snacks, etc.
Price is per bowl - 4 to choose from. Only 1 of each available.
These bowls were turned on a vintage Viceroy lathe which was 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 then 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.
Painted with Old Fashioned Milk Paint: which is the faithful recreation of an ancient homemade paint formula, containing just milk protein (casein), lime and natural earth or mineral pigments, making it environmentally friendly, non-toxic, VOC-free, baby-safe, food-safe & biodegradable.
Approximate dimensions: Bowl A: 195mm x 70mm, Bowl B: 195mm x 70mm, Bowl C: 185mm x 75mm, Bowl D: 180mm x 70mm.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
