A large bowl (52cms x 36cms) that I turned last spring from green oak
I have been busy over the last year, working a great deal with green oak, amongst other woods. The impetus for the larger bowls has evolved after an invitation from João Nunes, who is a Professor at the University of Aveiro and was the designer for an exhibition – Agricultura Lusitania. This exhibition was inspired by the work that is going on at ADXTUR- Agência para o Desenvolvimento Turístico das Aldeias do Xisto. A wonderful project in central Portugal.
More about this shortly – meanwhile, here are a couple more photographs of my turned bowls in the exhibition. DO check out the lovely video of the exhibition too!
