All bowls are fully functional; they can be wiped down or gently washed. They are crafted with a strong sense of both practical design and aesthetic presence.
A beautiful piece of burr Oak was used to make this “lozenge” bowl. A burr is the bulbous growth that is sometimes seen bulging out of the side of certain trees like oak and elm. The burr is a defect, a cankered part of the tree, but can reveal some fabulous grain figure rather likes cat’s paws or bird’s eyes.
The Last Supper Bowls
Crafted from aged lime wood fallen in the grounds of Wigmore church in Herefordshire. I had the idea that a series of carved square bowls could represent the men who shared Christ’s Last Supper. I called them The Last Supper Bowls and recalled the painting by Leonardo da Vinci in which the disciples are sitting at a long table with Christ at the centre. I felt that the immediacy of the carving, the rawness of the bowls, might reflect the nature of the twelve disciples. Each bowl has it’s own “character” but a little magic happens when they are together.
