Thomas Stahl

Segmented wood bowls made from 37-700+ pcs of domestic & exotic woods. All pieces designed to be used for food – all have a high gloss food safe finish. All signed and numbered by artist.

Stahl Bowls was founded in 2005 in Fairfield, OH as an outgrowth of a 40 + yr. hobby of clock and furniture making.  The segmented bowls were a happy accident resulting from a clock spindle supplier going out of business.  The need to have 4 walnut spindles for a large Eli Terry clock resulted in early attempts at using a long neglected wood lathe.  While researching on the Internet a small 13 piece “segmented” bowl pattern was discovered and tried.  A new passion was born and now over 2,600 bowls later a fine crafts business is flourishing.  “Stahl Bowls” have spread around the world with pieces in Italy, Germany, England, Japan,  Australia, China, Sweden, India , Peru, and Canada.

Tom and his wife sell to the public at 12-14 Fine Arts and Craft shows each year – mostly in the Mid-Atlantic states.
