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.
