Spencer Peterman hand turns his fine wooden bowls in his Western Massachusetts workshop. He gathers wood from fallen trees in the area (and sometimes far outside of it).
Hidden in these fallen trees - especially the ones covered by moss and dirt - is wood disfigured by the beginnings of decomposition. Turning that wood on a lathe produces strikingly unique bowls.
Practices such as kiln drying and applying a natural, food safe finish makes Spencer's work so beautiful.
