Salad Bowl with Servers

  • Bob Stocksdale, Salad Bowl with Servers, ca. 1975, teak, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase, 1975.178A-C

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 (see 1995.100.30) and Salad Bowl with Servers, the simple shapes emphasize the subtle patterns in the exotic woods.
