Phil Brown's bowls are designed to bring out the natural color of the wood. He began turning wood in the 1970s after seeing some inspiring wood pieces on a trip to Maine. He purchased a book about wood turning and a secondhand lathe and taught himself how to turn a bowl through trial and error. Brown uses wood from locally grown trees and creates one-of-a-kind vessels in his workshop in Bethesda, Maryland.
