This bowl was handmade from a specially selected piece of timber.
The timber was first mounted on the lathe and the outside turned to the desired shape and then the texture pattern was applied using a hand spiral tool. The inside of the bowl was then hollowed out to the desired shape.
when turning was completed, the bowl was then sanded by hand to give a smooth tactile surface finish, then a wood sealer was applied.
After sealing the bowl was spun on the lathe while several coats of beeswax were applied and burnished to give a polished finish.
