bradford pear


GEORGINA is a contemporary shallow wood bowl that I hand turned from Bradford pear responsibly sourced in nearby Franklin County, Kentucky. I never tire of the surprise I hear when viewers of my work learn that a “nuisance” tree like Bradford pear can be so beautiful when turned. With this piece I returned to my favorite “flying saucer” shape, though some say it resembles Saturn with its rings.

Natural cracks are present in the wood and have been reinforced. I consider natural cracks to be features of the wooden vessels that I make, and believe that they that add to the uniqueness of each piece.

The overall contemporary shallow wood bowl measures 14-5/8″ wide by 1-1/2″ tall, with the inner bowl portion measuring approximately 10-1/4″ wide and 1-1/8″ deep. The wood was polished with food safe walnut oil to provide a durable finish and rich luster. 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.

Creekview Woodshop donates a portion of every sale to Green Forests Work, a nonprofit dedicated to re-establishing healthy and productive forests on formerly mined lands in Appalachia.
