Constance is a turned wood bowl that I made on my lathe from hackberry wood responsibly sourced in nearby Franklin County, Kentucky. I never tire of the surprise I hear in people’s voices when they ask what this wood is and learn it’s from the much maligned hackberry tree! The tree may not be popular, but its wood most definitely turns heads.
This turned wood bowl measures approximately 6-1/2″ wide, 1-5/8″ tall, and 1″ deep. I finished the hackberry wood with high friction polish to enhance the natural changes in coloring, tone, and grain in the hackberry wood.
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.
