V stands for "vertical" as in vertical layers.
No flashy wild grain or burl patterns here. I choose the main wood slab based primarily on the natural beauty of the grain.
The V series bowl shapes are minimalist and simpler than the other laminated pieces using a limited number of layers. Though understated the layers do add another visually interesting dimension to the bowl without overpowering the beauty of the wood.
Some of these bowls start out as a slab of hardwood which I cut and then add a sandwich of layers of contrasting colored woods and veneers.
For others I remove a 3/16" slice, wrap it with colored veneer and hardwood layers, and glue it back together.
After the glued-up bowl blank cures I turn it on the lathe and we apply the usual treatment involving several coats of sealer, lacquer, and carnauba wax.
We think you will find the new V bowls beautiful and compelling.
All bowls are best appreciated using a hands-on approach.
We encourage you to make an appointment to stop by the studio to see current inventory.
No drop-ins please.
