Chris Helliwell Small Hand-Turned Beech Wood Bowl...
Pole-lathe turning is an ancient art, that has nearly entirely died out in this country. It is a shame as this process offers the wood the respect that it deserves and creates something unique and soulful. When Chris started turning wood, he had heard of pole lathes literally bodged up from bits of wood and string and tried making one himself. He was hooked and would not now use a machine lathe even if he was given one.
It is this age-old way of doing things, which inspires Chris. And we are very pleased to be able to present to you a small range of his beautiful rustic bowls created from felled beech collected from the Fountains Abbey Estate, nearby to Chris' workshop.
