Spencer Peterman is the craftsman behind Peterman's Boards and Bowls, a company in Gill, Massachusetts. Peterman began his journey as a basket weaver and soon grew curious of the art of working on a lathe. He practiced and developed his own lathe design to craft bowls with a more rustic appearance. The wooden bowls Spencer Peterman crafts have a simple form, focusing the users attention to the natural beauty of maple, cherry, or black walnut. Peterman finds his wood in Western Massachusetts, almost entirely from the fallen trees of his region. Spencer Peterman bowls uniquely celebrate nature's masterful design and human's will to showcase it.
