Simone is a decorative wood bowl that I made from osage orange wood sustainably sourced in Franklin County, Kentucky.
While I was turning the piece on the lathe, two naturally occurring voids appeared. At first I thought I would have to scrap it, but the more I continued working, the more I came to love it. Why judge an an awesomely striking piece of wood like osage orange just because it has a hole (or two, haha)? I think she’s a beauty and her “flaws” make her one lovely little unique piece.
This decorative wood bowl measures 5-3/8″ wide and 1-5/8″ tall with interior dimensions of 4-5/8″ wide and 1-1/4″ deep. I finished it with high friction polish to bring out the natural changes in coloring, tone, and grain of the osage orange wood. Finally, 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.
