  • Bob Stocksdale, Plate, 1986, wenge, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of George Peter Lamb and Lucy Scardino in memory of Natalie Rust Lamb, 1995.100.30

Luce Center Label

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.
