Bobby Jacobs’ hand-carved bowls and burls are sculpted from the rarest, oldest, fallen trees in upstate New York. Trees that have been down at least 25 years and over 200-years-old provide the unique textures and exceptional scale that are characteristic of Bobby’s work. Because these trees are so rare, it can take up to one year to find one tree that can yield only two bowls. Burls are even more challenging to find. Each of Bobby’s pieces is individually carved and treated, highlighting the dark lines (spalting), water stains, and sensual wooden curves that reflect nature’s never-ending transitions.
