Ocean Blue Wave Bowl


Ocean Blue Wave Bowl is a natural edge bowl that is 10 x 8 x 5. It is Ash and as such is absent of interesting grain and color.  In order to make it more appealing I apply texture with a pyrography pen which is a wood branding technique and a blue dye stain.   My signature, Alan Adler is on the base.  If you like this Natural Edge Brain Bowl you can check out another Wood bowl you may like especially this Ambrosia Bowl

There are many wood turners who believe artists should never paint wood. They are “Wood Purists” and I often get lip from them for altering wood.  Their argument is ridiculous as wood has been painted for centuries.  Wood is a canvas and it does grow on trees. What if there are “Canvas Purists?”  That would make a fun trip to the museum to see walls of white canvas.

Picture a bowl like Ocean Blue Wave Bowl on your dining room table containing fruits like apples or oranges. It can also be a Catch-All cell phone holder or jewelry keeper for placing items in when you get home.  All you have to do is remember to put the items into the bowl and your life will be easier.

All items on this website are from my studio in New Jersey, USA.  I divide my time between making a form on the lathe and then enhancing it at the studio bench. I may employ a variety of techniques to add interest to a piece.  This may include carving, piercing, pyrography and stains.
