GAIA is a round wooden box hand turned from cherry wood with a walnut lid and cherry and spalted maple finial. All of the wood is responsibly sourced right here in Bourbon County, Kentucky. I put a lot of thought into designing this piece. Influences from some of my more contemporary bowl designs are evident in its lid and overall silhouette.
With the lid, this round wooden box measures 6-3/4″ wide by 5-3/8″ tall. Without the lid, the bowl on its own measures approximately 5-3/8″ wide, 2″ tall, and 1-1/2″ deep. I finished the wood with Yorkshire Grit & Hampshire sheen polish to enhance its natural color, grain, and tone. 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.
