Large Salad / Fruit Bowl with celtic bee engraving and carving


Large Salad/ fruit/ serving bowl with carving and engraving


This is a large bowl turned from a big Sycamore from west Cumbria. Turned from green wood with little movement after drying out. The grain and colour is beautiful. This is a piece I made for an exhibition that highlighted the importance and plight of Bees. I thought a fruit bowl is perfect for that because we will not have fruits without pollinators.

I also added some carving on the outside walls, something I only started doing recently and I like the results.

Large bowls like this are always one-off items and take a good while to turn on the pole-lathe. They make excellent salad or fruit bowls that will sit beautifully as a centre piece on any table.


This one is a whooper and measure 31.5  by 7.5cm deep and will hold a lot of salad or fruit. Perfect for giving as a house warming or as a wedding present.


    31.5 cm wide and 7.5 cm high.


    Turned from Sycamore, oiled and ready to use.

    Wash with luke warm water.

    Do not put it into microwave or dishwasher.
