About Carl Sherry

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.

Milo

The scientific name of Milo is Thespesia populnea. It is also known as a portia tree. A member of the Hibiscus family, the malvacceae, it is a close relative of hau, `ilima, and ma`o, Hawai`i cotton. The bark of milo was used for cordage fiber, similarly to hau, but it is inferior in quality to hau and to olona. The tree also yields tannin, dye, oil, medicine and gum, from various parts of the plant.

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!
