One-of-a-kind  turned wood bowl by Daniel Harris.

Mahogany lid, plum and walnut base.

 

About the artist:

Daniel Harris retired from the Hi-tech Electronics Industry and then lost his vision in the left eye due to a macular hole. Surgery did not recover his vision.  Depth perception and the ability to carve wood was lost.  A neighbor at the coast suggested wood turning.  Daniel mastered turning bowls and using lathe machinery.

 

Turning wood that has been cut down requires special care in order for the wood to end up in its intended state.  For bowls, the fresh green wood is rough turned to an approximate shape, leaving a wall thickness about 10% of the diameter.

 

The rough turned bowl is coated with a wax emulsion and left to dry for eight months to one year before final turning is done.  Bowls that end up with hidden voids or cracks are enhanced with gemstone filling.

 

Plum wood enhanced with turquoise.

 

Daniel’s latest skill is adding pattern to the rims and sides of the bowls.

 

“Today, as our homes fill with industrially produced items and products made out of the country, is it any wonder that businesses are once again investing on the appeal of the unique, the authentic, the handmade?  When “sustainability” is the watchword in everyone’s mind, these age-old practices promise if not salvation, then at least a balm for tired spirits, and remind us that the greatest luxury it time for creation.”  –Leslie Camhi

Indeed, “it stands to reason– fungus in furniture cannot  possibly be a good thing.  But if fungi take hold as a tree starts to die and the process is arrested just as the tree sets up natural chemical barriers within itself to contain the infestation, then they imbue the grain of the timber with all the drama of finely veined marble.  Prized for fine woodworkers, this process is called spalting, and the transformation is especially magical in humble woods.”  — Avinash Rajagopal/ Metropolis
