Carl Sherry Koa natural edge bowl 3.75 x 9.25 x 9.25
Oahu craftsman Carl Sherry 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. Many people remember him with aloha for his support and kokua. Nohea Gallery is honored to share his work with you.
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 too learned to turn pens on a lathe. Bowls were the natural progression from there.
In order to get the satiny finish of his bowls, Carl uses a sanding sealer, then power sands the piece to 220 grit. Hand sanding follows, using from 120 to up to 2000 grit paper. A coat of Polyurethane/Penetrol is applied between grits, and finally the bowl is buffed with Tripoli, White Diamond and Carnuba Wax.
To care for your bowl by Carl Sherry, keep it out of bright sunlight and water, and dust it occasionally for many years of enjoyment.
