About Ralf Bidder
Wooden vessels and plates on a traditional pole-lathe turned in the north-west of England. I have been turning professionally for over a decade now and have worked hard to achieve a high quality product. I take extra care in the last-round-finishing-cut to show what is possible without the use of scraper or sandpaper. The lathe is in action at Priest's Mill Open Studio on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Priest's Mill, Church Terrace, CA7 8 Caldbeck. And because a wooden bowl wants to be married to a wooden spoon, I carve those as well. I have to supplement my bowls with work made using modern machinery too.
