Monticello Bowls

From 2009 to 2018 I turned close to a thousand bowls from the trees at Monticello. The most excellent were those from the magnificent tulip poplars that flanked the great house, with the first Tulip Poplar I that had to be taken down in 2008, continuing with the Sugar Maple that blew down in 2011, and then the Tulip Poplar II that was taken down later that year.

All of those bowls are sold.  You may call the Monticello Museum Shop at 434-984-0940 to see what they might have in stock, or consult the Monticello Online Shop for all the handcrafted items now available. There are numerous bowls and other turned items available from various significant trees from the Monticello estate, created by a number of excellent local artisans.
