Andrew Pearce bowls combine the artistic integrity of a hand-turned bowl with the efficiency of a machine-manufactured product. Using locally sourced wood, Andrew Pearce bowls are created through a unique manufacturing process employing equipment specifically designed by Andrew. The lathe he created emphasizes efficiency and safety. It roughs out the bowl blanks, which in turn are dried, and then turned on a traditional woodturning lathe, where they are finished by hand to capture all the authenticity and design of a hand-turned bowl. The process produces very little waste, utilizing as much of the wood as possible to minimize impacts on the environment and encourage sustainability.
