Carl Sherry Longan Bowl 5 3/4 x 5 9/16″

Like its redder cousin Lychee, the Longan tree is a member of the Soapberry family.  The Longan fruit is smaller than lychee.  Like Lychee, it was brought to Hawaii from Asia.

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.

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.

The dimensions in the item description are for the bowl itself; dimensions under ‘additional information’ tab includes packing size when this item is packaged for shipment, mahalo.
