Peterman's Boards & Bowls
Extracting beauty from trees left to rot
Spencer Peterman is always on the lookout for fallen trees rotting in the woods. He gets excited about this kind of stuff. So do his customers. Hidden in those fallen trees — especially the ones covered by moss and dirt — is wood disfigured by the beginnings of decomposition. Turning that wood on a lathe produces strikingly unique bowls, perfect for your home or showroom.
Burl wood is an exquisite hard wood with unparalleled beauty often admired for their irregularity. They range from fully functional bowls to unique artistic conversational pieces. Burl wood is notoriously rare and hard to find.
