This weeks members' choice is Burr Oak bowl by Mark Sutton

Selected by Nick Simpson.



Nick says,
I chose this bowl because it is simple and shows thoughtful use of wood and colour.
The piece starts with clever orientation of the blank with the 3 burrs on the same radius. Mark has used bold black lines to define the rim and accentuate the transition to the central bowl. The use of much more subtle colouring on the rim strengthens the grain patterns and highlights the contrast with the plain burr-free bowl.
My take-home message about this piece would be that it illustrates how time spent thinking about the orientation of the wood before cutting or chucking really pays dividends.
