Tray

  • Bob Stocksdale, Tray, 1986, Honduras mahogany, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Jane and Arthur Mason, 2005.31.6

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 Tray the simple shape emphasizes the subtle veins found in Honduras mahogany.
