Our beautiful hand-turned bowl is designed with simplicity and functionality in mind. It can be used in a multitude of ways, from holding fruit, nuts or crisps or as a table centrepiece.
Each bowl starts life as a tree on the Dartington Estate in Devon. It is transformed from planks by volunteers on a work-based training scheme designed to support current and former prisoners back into the community and to reduce reoffending. You can read more on our Makers page.
From a 'blank', bowls are manually shaped on a lathe and carved with a chisel. Carving happens only when a tree needs to be removed and, by keeping them on site, the carbon footprint is negligible.
Due to the organic materials and handmade nature of these bowls, some natural variation in grain, colour and shape may occur (as can be seen in the shapes in the third picture). Images depict the item as accurately as possible. The colours and textures will change over time as the bowl develops its own character and patina

Your bowl will last best if you clean it gently with a damp cloth. It has not been oiled (though you can do so if you wish) and should never be left in water or put in the dishwasher. Best stored out of direct sunlight.
