Show Bowls

A few bowl turning pictures as I have been producing for a part in a few shows this fall.

Below is a stack including walnut, persimmon, ash, cypress and two elm species.

A few more added from above on the workbench, the same species as above with the addition of a few crab-apple.

Hollowing a large cypress bowl on the lathe using a 1/2 bowl gouge.

A few blow-ups from experimenting with the grind on a smaller bowl gouge.

  1. It was really good to meet you and your wife and see your work at Finial Friday this October in Wichita. I’m honored to become a caretaker of one of your cottonwood bowls, as well as a feather weight persimmon bowl. Your attention to detail, craftsmanship, and spirit is inspiring. Thanks for sharing your gifts.

    • Thanks for taking the time to talk and to comment here as well. It is a pleasure to meet someone who appreciates Wharton Esherick. I hope that you enjoy the bowls.
