Harvest Bowl with Handle
Spencer Peterman has been turning bowls for 15 years. Originally a basket weaver making Nantucket baskets, Spencer began his artistic career doing craft shows, where he became interested in the idea of learning how to turn bowls. He visited a few of the wood bowl companies in Vermont and started practicing on a lathe. Eventually he designed and made his own lathe that would produce a more natural and rugged shaped bowl. Around that same time, Spencer noticed that there were a lot of local trees being chipped up or cut for firewood. He thought he could turn all those discarded logs into something much more functional, and beautiful as well. We at NHB are so glad that he did! Today most of the wood Spencer gets is from locally fallen trees in Western Massachusetts, such as maple, cherry or black walnut.
