Free-form bowls, natural-edge turnings and bowls containing wood that is beautiful but too soft to use for salads all make wonderful additions to the home. Besides being decorative, such items can be used as fruit bowls, vases for dried flowers, pencil holders, magazine "racks", knitters' yarn holders, bowls of hand-towels in the bathroom - only your imagination limits the use!

Bark-edge birdseye Arbutus vessel
ON HOLD

This extraordinary vessel comes from an Arbutus root burl salvaged near Victoria. Ken turned and sanded it while the wood was still green, then dried it carefully to prevent cracking. The resulting vessel expressed itself by going oval and leaning a bit, then developed a textured skin that looks and feels rather like a large walnut shell!
