One of my favourite things to turn is bowls for a number of reasons. The primary reason is there functionality. Wooden bowls have been used for centuries to hold and share food and a variety of other substances and have been prized objects passed along through generations. Another reason is that many bowls display many lovely properties of wood as depicted below. I very much enjoy seeing these properties emerge from the wood as the rough block takes shape on the lathe.
Bowls are gorgeous, I shouldn’t have got so many but loving them all. The candlesticks are unique and very special.
Very nice website Gaalen. Love your bowls
Beautiful work–unique and elegant. Each looks like it is what the wood was meant to become.
Wonderful pictures and great bowls, Gaalen. This inspires Ling and myself to create artifacts ourselves!
Unbelievable! Sooooooo lovely! Just perfect! So impressed! Bravo Gaalen, BRAVO! Exceptionnel!
