ETTA is a modern small bowl that I hand turned from cherry wood responsibly sourced right here in beautiful Bourbon County, Kentucky. Another play on one of my favorite forms, the flying saucer, I really enjoyed making this little dish.
This modern small bowl measures approximately 5″ wide by 1-5/8″ tall and is 1-1/4″ deep. I polished the bowl with food safe walnut oil to enhance its grain and natural coloring. Additionally, I reinforced the small knot visible on the edge, which adds to the dish’s character. There’s something about the juxtaposition of clean lines with “imperfect” wood that I find incredibly appealing.
Finally, care instructions for the wood 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.
