About Our Business

Artistic Wooden Bowls is a family-owned business based in our woodshop studio in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.  What started in 2003 as a hobby has now grown into a small art-based company.  Through the years, we have offered our handmade bowls and lidded boxes in a few select businesses.  These include different local art galleries and family-owned funeral homes.  We have also displayed my collection at a number of local art showings and frame shops, and have presented work in two major art galleries in Kansas City, Missouri.  

We offer a wide variety of original handmade bowls and trays; some are made of the greatest Pennsylvania Cherry burls, others turned from rarest Arizona Desert Ironwood. We also offer many trays made with the most beautiful Florida Coconut Palm.  We use only figured and burled woods, with over three hundred species in our current supply.  Each cremation urn is valued according to the cost of the woods used, the artisan's time applied, and the artistic design needed for the piece.  

For seven years, we have chain sawed, planed, waxed and sold burled wood blocks on EBay.  We sold lumber from this region, and then bought pieces from others.  This work has provided our business with a huge supply of wood blocks from many different regions of the United States, South America, the Middle East, Australia, and other parts of the world.   Nearly all of the trees we milled were salvaged, and going to be burned or chipped.  Processing me own lumber has taught me an enormous amount about trees.  The longer we turn wood art, the more our hearts grows for it.  

Our hand-made bowls are all true works of art, created individually by life-long woodcrafters who love their work.  We personally select every item in our inventory for artistic value, structural strength, and quality workmanship.  The artist signs and dates each piece, and then sends a personal biography with the order. 

Because we use only the finest burls of wood and handcraft every piece, all of our wood-turned art comes with a three (3) month resolution repair and/or full replacement guarantee for any imperfections in the wood, glues used, or artisanship.  We put our hearts into every wooden bowl we make.
Order with Confidence 
100% Satisfaction Guarantee
We create artistic wooden bowls and platters, for those who love beauty. 
Every handmade bowl is created from carefully selected rare burled and figured woods, and is individually hand-turned. We refuse to die, color or paint any piece of wood.  With so many different natural colors and textures, we believe there is absolutely no need. Each wooden bowl is fully sanded and completely finished on every edge, including inside the vessel, outside, top, bottom, and under every lid.
