In 2018, a powerful storm swept through Co Kildare, causing widespread damage and destruction. One of the casualties of the storm was a beautiful Sycamore tree on a local farm. The farmers were devastated to lose such a magnificent tree, but they were determined to find a way to honour its memory and give it a new life. Enter an Irish wood turner, who was approached by the farmers with a proposal to turn the fallen tree into a beautiful wooden bowl. The wood turner was thrilled at the opportunity and carefully selected the best pieces of wood from the tree to create a stunning bowl. Using traditional wood turning techniques, the wood turner carefully shaped the wood into a beautiful bowl, highlighting the natural beauty of the wood's grain and texture. Despite the storm's destructive power, the wood turner was able to transform the fallen tree into a work of art that would last for generations. Now, this beautiful Sycamore wood turned bowl carries with it the story of the storm and the resilience of the farmers who refused to let it be forgotten. It's a testament to the skill and craftsmanship of Irish wood turners and a beautiful reminder of the power of nature to inspire beauty and art.
