We met Courtland at a Loveland art fair this summer, where his work was drawing crowds. When we got close enough to see, the reason was obvious – displays of beautiful turned wood urns, bowls and trays in elegant shapes. Courtland’s favorite woods to work with are burls and other ‘figured’ woods – spalted, birdseye, etc., which lend fascinating pattern and color variation.
We chose a collection of maple burl pieces, and a group of more casual cottonwood bowls and trays. All bowls and trays have food-safe finishes.
