Woodworker: Graeme Priddle

Priddle, a wood turner based in New Zealand, took a Japanese-style bowl and gave it a Maori twist. He had multiple inspirations for the black curves, including traditional kowhaiwhai, which are scroll patterns found on Kiwi meeting houses, and mamaku, a type of black tree fern. He used a spiral-brand wood burner and black acrylic paint to create the design. The bowl is part of an American Association of Woodturners exhibit, Japanese Bowls: A Western Perspective. Priddle finished the piece with Haarlem oil, a New Zealand made tung oil based product.
