These hand-hewn & turned wood bowls are layered with oil glazes, gilding, & intricately hand-painted design. Influences stem from the arts of japanning and laquerware, as well as chinoisere design. Demonstrations will include gilding and painting on bowls. The handmade longbows are a contemporary version of a traditional longbow, and are made from north american hardwoods. They vary in draw-weight from 25 lbs to 55 lbs for use by youth and adult archers. The quivers are hand cut and sewn from leather, and the arrows are handmade of cedar shafts and turkey feathers. Demonstrations will illustrate the art of shaping and applying leather grips to bow handles and hand- sewing leather quivers.
