Spencer Peterman's bowls are kiln dried to 6% moisture content to stabilize and prevent future cracking and checking. They then apply they're own food-safe finish to bring out the natural beauty of the wood. It is recommended that you apply this oil once a month. Priced for each 8oz bottle.

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.”
