Bob Stocksdale used only one tool, a half-inch gouge, for most of his bowls, platters, trays, and bookends. He valued craftsmanship and often made multiples so that he could carefully refine a particular form. In Plate and Salad Bowl with Servers, the simple shapes emphasize the subtle patterns in the exotic woods.
