Bradford Pear | Franklin County, KY

GEORGINA is a contemporary wood bowl that I hand turned from Bradford pear responsibly sourced in nearby Franklin County, Kentucky. I never tire of the surprise I hear when viewers of my work learn that a “nuisance” tree like Bradford pear can be so beautiful when turned. With this piece I returned to my favorite “flying saucer” shape, though some say it also resembles Saturn with its rings.

Natural cracks are present in the wood and have been reinforced. Also visible on the inside of the vessel is a faint phantom line from the footring on the underside. It’s more visible from certain angles, but does not detract from the overall beauty of the piece. I consider natural cracks to be features of the wooden vessels that I make, and believe that they that add to the uniqueness of each piece.

The overall contemporary wood bowl measures 14-5/8″ wide by 1-1/2″ tall, with the inner bowl portion measuring approximately 10-1/4″ wide and 1-1/8″ deep. The wood was polished with food safe walnut oil to provide a durable finish and rich luster.
