Nested Bowls

15 December 2008 was exactly fifty years since the last bowlturner George Lailey died aged 89. I felt I should mark the occasion with something special so I made a nesting set of bowls in spalted beech. These are cut from one block of wood, one from inside the next, using special curved tools which I make myself. It makes very efficient use of the wood and also means the grain pattern runs through the bowls making a very special matching set.
Since rediscovering this lost craft I have taught quite a few people to turn bowls but I am still the only person in the world capable of making these big nests of bowls on the pole lathe.
