Thomas Stahl / Stahl Bowls
wood / wood turnings
Hometown: Fairfield, OH
Wooden bowls have a natural, raw look that makes any space feel more inviting and cozy. Though these home essentials are quite popular, Thomas Stahl has managed to put a completely unique spin on them with his collection of Stahl Bowls. Rather than sticking to a single type of wood, Stahl works with 36 different species of wood from all over the world. Then, he incorporates a variety of colors and textures into each bowl to create a completely one-of-a-kind piece. In fact, the typical Stahl Bowl can feature anywhere from dozens to hundreds of individual pieces of wood.
Stahl creates a number of bowls that, while complementary, defy that matchy-matchy look seen in other pieces. Many customers enjoy collecting a variety of his snack bowls, bread bowls, salad bowls and other creations to create a beautiful wood theme throughout the home. Each Stahl Bowl also has a durable and food-safe finish that makes them just as practical as they are beautiful. Meet Stahl and see his work in person at an upcoming Sugarloaf Crafts Festival.
