Warren Carpenter lives and creates in north-west South Carolina. An accomplished artist, Warren’s favorite medium is wood, and has been focusing on wood-turning since 1999. Along with producing hundreds of bowls each year, Warren also teaches wood-turning throughout the country, and demonstrates his craft at various venues, where he wows crowds with his skill and his sharp wit!
The slightly rough edge, the silky-smooth interior, and fine, black lines caused by spalting in this turned bowl are a fine example of his skill, as well as his eye for making the most of a beautiful piece of wood.
Can be used for nuts, or as a small cracker basket, but avoid soggy ingredients.
