David Susag


David turns wooden bowls on a spring pole lathe using hand forged tools. The lathe is a reciprocating lathe powered by only David and the wood that he uses is fresh green wood. His turning technique is one that dates back over a thousand years. He built the lathe and forged some of the tools himself. David is inspired by the ale bowls that he sees in the Folk Museums in Norway and Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum in Decorah, IA. The bowls are decorated with a food safe finish and are meant to be used.
