Thanks to our students on Sunday who agreed to participate in the 1 Tree, 100 Bowls project. Dan, Gretchen, Tom and Melissa started with chunks of the pine tree and ended up with bowls #16, 17, 18, 19, 20, and 21. We’ll look forward to seeing photos of the finished bowls. Mark turned bowl 22 as a demonstration bowl.

In March of 2010, Mark Supik, brother Ed and nephew Joe felled a storm damaged pine tree that was unstable and too close to Ed’s house in hickory, Maryland. They brought the pieces to Mark’s Baltimore City shop with a plan to use the wood for turning bowls. Some of the bowls Mark plans to turn himself and some will be turned by students in his workshops. Expecting that there was enough wood to create 100 bowls, we decided to document each bowl as it was turned. We’d like to follow the story of each bowl after it leaves the lathe and reaches it’s new home.
