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. 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 learned to turn pens on a lathe. Bowls were the natural progression from there.

“Acer  is a genus of trees or shrubs commonly known as maple. The genus is placed in the Sapindaceae family. There are approximately 128 species, most of which are native to Asia, with a number also appearing in Europe, northern Africa, and North America. Only one species, Acer laurinum, extends to the Southern Hemisphere. The type species of the genus is the sycamore maple, Acer pseudoplatanus, the most common maple species in Europe.”

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!
