Tupelo Bowl
Jim Griffin carves bowls and platters from salvaged tupelo gum stumps that are left after the trees are cut for timber.
Many hand-manipulated tools are used in the carving process from chain saw and side grinders to chisels and files. The always-surprising grain of the tupelo emerges as the sanding begins and is brought to life as many coats of salad bowl finish are applied.
These bowls are made to be used and are safe for hot or cold foods. Simply wipe out with warm soapy water followed by a quick rinse. Tupelo is a softwood. Please do not use sharp serving utensils.
Each bowl or platter is unique. Great care is taken to keep their design simple and let the natural grain of the tupelo tell its story.
