About Carl Sherry

This bowl was made by Oahu craftsman Carl Sherry who was born and raised in Manoa Valley on the island of Oahu, and attended Honolulu Community College. He spent his adult life working to help others through job training and workforce training.

Carl is dedicated to providing quality woodturnings of beautiful Hawaiian woods, and is especially known for his extraordinarily fine finish. As an artist, he always strives to make “that perfect bowl” and appreciates that others enjoy his work.

His first wood project was a Koa rocking chair, but when Carl noticed that people were asking for the cast-off curly wood from projects to make pens, he learned to turn pens on a lathe. Bowls were the natural progression from there.

Autograph Tree (Clusia)

The Autograph tree is native to the Carribean and was brought to Hawaii as an ornamental plant. It can reach hights of 65 feet. When the fruits are dropping to the ground they are turning into a beautiful hard star shape. The wood of the Autograph tree is very durable and is sometimes used for roof construction.

 

To care for your Autograph Tree Bowl, keep it out of bright sunlight and water. Dust it occasionally for many years of enjoyment.
