Snibolle #1

£60.00


The Snibolle originates in Scandinavia as a wooden drinking bowl, turned from a single piece of wood with two handles opposite each other.

Its design is based on one in The Kisa Museum, Sweden, made in 1754

These were made from a Beech tree in Tynedale, Northumberland. Felled by a friend who gave me a tour of his wood-yard while allowing me to choose timber for turning.

They were turned on my pole lathe, a traditional method of turning wooden bowls, which is powered by nothing more than the person operating it.

They are finished with Walnut oil and beeswax and will develop their own patina over the years

The bowl is 3.5" (9 cm) diameter and 2.25" (6 cm) deep and is 8.5" (22 cm ) tip to tip

Best for cold drinks as boiling water can lead to splits in the wood

Wash in warm water and dry, not dishwasher safe.
