Artists - Philip Moulthrop
The turned wooden bowls and vases by Philip Moulhtrop are created from green sections of native southeastern trees. The green log is first turned into the initial shape using a hand-made lathe and hand-made tools. After being turned, it is treated for several months to prevent cracking. The piece is then dried for more than a month and turned again on the lathe to its final form. The bowl or vase undergoes numerous standings and is coated with several layers of finish. The entire process may take from four months to more than a year, depending on the type of wood and the season.
