About Our Business

Artistic Wooden Bowls is a family-owned business based in our woodshop studio in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.  What started twelve years ago as a hobby has now grown into a small art-based company.  Through the years, we have offered our hand-turned bowls and lidded boxes in a few select businesses.  These include different local art galleries and family-owned funeral homes.  I 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 hand-made 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, I have chain sawed, planed, waxed and sold burled wood blocks on EBay.  My EBay user name is Davethewoodman.  I 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 I cut up were salvaged, and going to be burned or chipped.  Processing my own lumber has taught me an enormous amount about trees.  The longer I turn wood art, the more my heart grows for it. 

Our hand-made bowls are all true works of art, created individually by life-long woodcrafters who love their work.  I 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 woodturned art comes with a three (3) month resolution repair and/or full replacement guarantee for any imperfections in the wood, glues used, or artisanship.  I put my heart into all the wooden wooden bowl I make, and I believe it shows.
