Thank you to the Manley Art Center Gallery in Brookings, OR and all of those who attended my gallery reception on January 14, 2018.  The question and answer portion of the day was really fun! Watch the video here or view photos of the event here.

Welcome to Bowls, Etc.

Brian Childers is an award winning artist specializing in turned bowls, containers, vessels hollow forms and more. He began turning wood a decade ago with a beginners lathe and a few inexpensive hand tools.

Childers creates creative and stunning pieces of functional art and gallery-quality display pieces from his hillside workshop near the coast in Brookings, Oregon. Most pieces start through the selection of fine grained woods like mahogany, bocote, blackwood, Siberian elm, cherry, Alaskan yellow cedar, and many others. Every now and then, you’ll find hand-made marbles, ball bearings, fossilized tusk, jade, or even a peep hole included in a container that makes a piece even more spectacular.

Wood turned bowls, containers, boxes and hollow forms make for a great and unique gift for the person with an affinity for beautify, a love of art, and an appreciation of quality craftsmanship. If you like what you see on these pages, you’ll like it even more on in your display case, on their desk, or on her vanity.d Turned Bowls – Unique Handcrafted Gifts
