Handmade out of upcycled wood, all Spencer Peterman products are food safe. Hand wash only. A group image of the artist's work is shown - each piece sold separately. This 15" board has a natural edge and a hole at the corner. The exact shape, size and figuration of each piece is unique.

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. Almost all the wood we get is from locally fallen trees in Western Massachusetts, such as maple, cherry or black walnut. The maple bowls are figured by the decomposition and aging of the wood, which we call “ambrosia” or “spalted.”
