Turned Bowls

I’m not a professional wood turner, but I get a great deal of personal satisfaction and enjoyment from turning and I love to see the natural qualities of the timbers exposed when I turn.

 

Whenever I turn a bowl I try to keep the overall design as simple and as organic as possible. Using flowing lines to expose and emphasise the timbers natural grain patterns, textures and colours. 

 

Subsequently burning and the application of coloured stains and liming further enhances the natural grain patterns and colours by making them even more prominent and pronounced.

 

As a matter of personal preference I predominately use sustainably sourced British timbers in my turning, particularly Oak, Ash, Elm and Spalted Beech and Birch which have particularly strong grain patterns and colours.
