Hand turned live edge ambrosia maple serving bowl, made by Stinson Studios.
The live bark edge combined with the smooth interior reflects a balance between rugged natural beauty and functional form. With this bowl, Stinson maintains as much of the natural tree as possible in the finished piece, and depending on the amount of colour in the individual bowl, it may range from freshly elegant to darkly mysterious.
Great for salads, side dishes or fruit. A classic dining table centrepiece! Each wood bowl is unique, colour and grain may vary.
Made in Tamworth, Ontario.
11" serves salad for 1-2
14" serves salad for 2-4
About Stinson Studios:
Stinson Studios is a two generation family woodworking business dating back to 1982. Since that time, the Stinsons have transformed a passion for woodworking as a cathartic exercise, into a thriving business with retail partners across North America.
Our locally sourced Canadian materials are a key to the success of our work. In particular, we are drawn to the rich natural spaulting patterns that can be found in aged or scared wood.
The Ambrosia Maple Bowls with “finger spaulting” or “starburst” patterns, that we have become known for, are a perfect example of spaulting that happens naturally during a trees' life span.
Over the past few decades, we have developed methods of naturally spaulting wood by burying and aging it for up to 18 months. By embracing nature and aging we can enhance the unique characteristics of different woods and create pieces with a balance between form, function and the incredible variation found in nature.
