James Embrey


I have a long-held passion for creating with wood.  I especially love the beauty of the natural grain inherent in many of our native woods.  Initially, I made tables, cabinets and cutting boards.  However, in recent years, I have mainly focused on carving wooden bowls and spoons.  Most of the bowls I create are carved from burls.  I try to find burls with irregular and interesting shapes.  Because I don’t use a lathe, I am able to follow the natural shape of the burl.  As a result, every bowl is unique.  The grain patterns found in burls are unpredictable and often beautiful, and I enjoy unlocking the natural beauty that nature has provided.
