Artistic and Functional Turnings

Bowls have traditionally been a functional addition to the dinner table with, more recently, the addition of artistic elements. We offer both; the functional aspect of their use depends on the design and/or the preference of the owner.

The pieces may be ordered directly from us or from one of the galleries listed on our Where to Buy page.

Finding the Character

Jerry enjoys focusing on the flaws (character) in the wood, turning “trash” into “treasure.” Hawaiian methods of bowl repair influenced his discovery of using “stitches” during the turning process, strengthening the “flaw” while emphasizing the character.

Architectural turning is available to furniture makers, builders, and architects. Please contact us for more information.
