About Studio Critical:
Set of 3 nested bowls with carved rim
These hand turned bowls are made from a Sycamore tree that was removed by tree surgeons in north Manchester. Hand carved texture on rim of all 3 bowls adds a beautiful tactile experience to holding these.
The bowls are a nested set, turned from a single piece of wood. Using a special curved tool to ‘scoop’ the smaller bowls out of the larger one. Truly a unique set, the bowls grain lines up as the bowl sit together as they were grown.
Dimensions: Approximately – 385mm x 105mm 235mm x 65mm 135mm x 40mm
These bowls were turned on a vintage Viceroy lathe, made in Leeds. In the tradition of pole lathe turning, the tool marks are left on the bowls, no sanding is performed, this is to accentuate the tactile surface of the wood. Turned while the wood was green (fresh) and air dried, allowing the natural movement of the wood to form the final shape.
Finished with a hand rubbed food safe linseed oil/beeswax mixture.
