spalted dogwood & walnut


FENYA is a hand turned wood lidded bowl that I made from spalted dogwood with a hand carved walnut finial.

Importantly, as I do for most of my work, I used wood responsibly sourced from Central Kentucky. I sourced the dogwood in Franklin County and the walnut right here in Bourbon County.

Every now and then I luck onto a really gorgeous piece of wood, and this is one of those occasions. As a result, this truly is a one-of-a-kind piece.

I’m told that the dogwood tree lived a long life as a loved and cherished gem because every spring it graced Shelby Street in Frankfort, Kentucky’s capital city, with its beautiful pink flowers. Because of this, I feel privileged to give the tree a second life, and I hope it continues to bring joy to those that see it.

With the lid, the wood bowl measures 5″ wide by 3-7/8″ tall, and without the lid, the bowl is approximately 1-1/2 tall and 1″ deep.

I finished this wood lidded bowl with Yorkshire Grit & Hampshire Sheen, which brings out its natural color, grain, and tone. 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.
