Beautiful thin walled Madrone bowl. This 10" bowl will add beauty to any kitchen when filled with fruit but the unique grain pattern and bark inclusions make this bowl a show piece even when empty.
This bowl was hand made from a log destined for firewood. The bowl walls are turned to approximately 1/8". It is finished with food safe walnut oil finish.
We are Darcy and Gina. We are the founders, promoters, laborers, designers and builders of
Our Dragonfly Studio.
Our Dragonfly Studio is our happy place. It is where we build and burn things. Where we create and where we teach. It is the space where we unwind, and it is the space where we get inspired and excited for new ideas and projects.
There is no simple answer to the question “What do you make in your shop?”
On any given day you might find me making a wooden bowl or a jewelry box. Gina might be laser etching a design onto a cutting board or designing tile markers for garden plants. We could be mixing paint or making up a batch of our cutting board conditioner. To us it doesn’t matter what project we are working on because we are happy being busy in our space.
Gina has had her hands in some form of artistic endeavor for a long time. She was an award-winning school photographer. She enjoyed the scrapbook craze back when it was all on paper but has now fully embraced the available digital technology. She has expanded her tech to include a high-end laser engraver and truly enjoys creating items with a personal touch. Her eye for detail and desire for a perfect product ensures very happy customers.
While we both share a love of photography our overall artistic preferences are uniquely our own. Gina prefers a perfectly round shaped bowl with no flaws. I would often choose one that has a rustic look to it. That may be why Gina will be found at the computer or hi-tech laser and I will be knee deep in saw dust and shavings at my lathe or outside with a chainsaw processing fallen trees into lumber for future projects. Almost all the wood we use in our shop is sourced locally near our home in Oregon.
In 2020 we expanded our studio space and built a classroom so we can offer classes to help others learn about what we do. Wood turning instruction for individuals or groups is available and it is possible to attend a class and leave with a finished product the same day.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our site and for supporting our business. Please feel free to reach out to us if you are looking for a personal gift that you don’t see here as our web presence is new. We would be happy to discuss your project.
