Turned from ash on my foot-powered bowl lathe. Authentically turned on a viking style lathe with hook tools only. Perfect for reenactors and wood lovers alike.
This ash bowls features two beads as decoration and has a rusitc finish. I emphasised the tool grooves on this one resulting in a textured finished with the toolmarks clearly dectectable. I like the feel it produced when you handle it. It speaks of hand-made quality. It has some dark heart at the top of the wall, something ash trees do beautifully when they grow old. It makes every bowl into a unique one. Great reenacters bowl and it would fit nicely into any rucksack or is equally great for any camping enthusiast who like to go natural.
Turned on my foot powered lathe in just the same way as turners of the old days would have produced their bowls. I love to keep alive the technique and history of this style of production which is like an antithesis to modern mass production.
This one has a flat base and two decorative bead as found on many Viking/ Saxon/ Norman bowls as well as on some medivial bowls.
