What you need to know:
Spencer Peterman knows wood, inside and out. That expertise enables him to provide some amazing alternatives to your standard wooden bowls and accessories – and each piece he creates has its own story. They proudly use all local woods from central New England: the Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont forests are a rich resource. They have special relationships with their local tree service companies. Normally, they would want to get rid of, chip up, or make firewood of logs with any decay – and that’s where Peterman comes in. They actually embrace decomposing wood because that decomposition gives each of the wood bowls a distinctive character. They believe in upcycling – taking logs that normally are discarded, and making something beautiful out of them. When Spencer gets hold of a Spalted Maple or an Ambrosia Maple log with just the right character, he can make wonderful things happen on the lathe.
