KATHERINE is a handmade cherry bowl that I turned on my lathe from wood responsibly sourced right here in Bourbon County, Kentucky. Actually, the wood for this bowl came from the loft of a friend’s barn. The slab sat up there drying for a number of years, so was good and dry (and hard!) by the time I got to it. The variation in coloring of the wood makes this a particularly striking piece.
This handmade cherry bowl measures approximately 10-3/4″ wide, 2-3/4 tall, and and 2-1/8″ deep. I polished the bowl with food safe walnut oil followed by a coating of beeswax and carnauba wax to provide a durable finish and rich luster. 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.
