Vermont Hand Carved Bowls

Gene Felder

As I carve out a bowl using traditional hand tools, I am continually amazed at the colors and grain patterns that were hidden below the outer bark and now appear. These qualities of the wood make the carving process continually changing, never finished till the drying is complete and the finish applied. Even then, time will continue to enrich and darken the colors and with continually handling, result in a changing patina.
