ARTEMIS is a modern wood bowl hand turned from spalted beech with bark inclusions, worm holes, and natural cracks (which have been reinforced).
Known as the goddess of the hunt, Artemis was the daughter of Zeus and the twin sister of Apollo. An archer with the power to send plagues upon mortals, I couldn’t help but think of her while I had the piece on the lathe. The beautiful figuring and depth of color, not to mention the overall appearance and feel of the wood, made me think of Greek mythology and nature.
This modern wood bowl measures approximately 12-1/4″ wide by 1-3/4″ tall with interior dimensions of 7″ wide by 1″ deep. A high friction polish finish brings out the wood’s natural color, grain, and tone. While safe to hold fruit, vegetables, and dried goods, this bowl should be kept away from moisture and never immersed in water.
Care instructions are included with the purchase of this piece.

A little about me….
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I primarily use found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky. It’s my hope that incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece serves as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.
