Inez is a large wooden fruit bowl that I hand turned on my lathe from cherry wood responsibly sourced in nearby Fayette County, Kentucky.
A few naturally occurring cracks are in the wood (including one on the bottom). I filled and/or reinforced these cracks, but otherwise left them as is as I consider them unique features of the vessel.
Perfect for holding fruit or serving a large salad, this bowl measures approximately 8-3/8″ in diameter and 4-1/4″ tall and 3-5/8″ deep. I polished the wood with food safe walnut oil followed by a blend of beeswax and carnauba wax to provide a durable finish and rich luster.
As with all of my turned dishes, I include care instructions 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.
