Spencer Peterman is always on the lookout for fallen trees rotting in
the woods. Hidden in those fallen trees, especially the ones covered by
moss and dirt, is wood disfigured by the beginnings of decomposition.
By turning that wood on a lathe, Peterman produces strikingly unique bowls, perfect
for display and serving in any home. Almost all the wood used by Peterman Bowls is sourced from locally fallen trees in Western
Massachusetts, such as maple, cherry or black walnut. Because they are meant to be used for food, all bowls are treated with bees wax and mineral oil for food safety and to prevent the wood from drying out.
