Using a hand adz, scorp and wood chisel, Steve Adams makes bowls the old fashioned way: from a block of wood out of a hardwood tree that he has cut down. His newest bowls are made from burls that grow around a wound in a living tree and create fascinating structures. He chops and chisels away the bark to reveal the tree’s hidden potential.
Steve started making hand-hewn bowls during a 3-day workshop in 1995, and is also known for beautiful sinks and cabinets. He has recently added tables to his collection, letting the wood grain and knots set the design. He is a member of the Southern Highlands Craft Guild in Asheville, NC, and his work can be found at various festivals as well as his home studio.
