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.

Cypress

Cypress is a common name for various coniferous trees or shrubs of northern temperate regions that belong to the family Cupressaceae. The word cypress is derived from Old French cipres, which was imported from Latin cypressus, the latinisation of the Greek κυπάρισσος (kyparissos).

These species of the Cypress family exist in Hawai’i:

– Arizona cypress, Cupressus arizonica
