Turned Ellipsoid Bowl

Shipping available worldwide – quote and taxes calculated at checkout. See what's included


Ellipsoid bowls are one of the most sought after designs by Stocksdale. Elliptical turning demands great skill. The bowl is turned using an accessory mounted to the headstock that changes the center of rotation of the piece in time with the rotation. In that way a cutting tool held in a fixed position on the tool-rest cuts an oval rather than a round path on the workpiece. In this particular piece, Stocksdale chose a very dramatic and highly figured piece of Ziricote, and to foreground the beauty of the grain and growth rings.
