Case study No.1 Turned bowl
Australian blackwood, 50mm x 250mm bowl blank
Theo Haralampou is a master wood turner whose skill and flair for woodturning makes this craft look easy. More about Theo here.
While Theo feels privileged to share his knowledge and experience with others, the greater privilege is for those attending his workshops. He is generous with his insights about ways to take advantage of the characteristics of each wood to create interesting projects.
Our blackwood bowl displays fabulous properties of chatoyance, a holographic or iridescent effect caused by the refraction of light into the wood fibres, which showcases the natural lustre of Australian blackwood.
