Spencer Peterman

15" Classic Round Black Walnut Bowl


We first laid eyes on these glorious Spencer Peterman bowls up in Boston and dinner has not been the same since. They are hand-hewn from local trees – and, with the right care, an heirloom you can pass down. We make crazy salads in Peterman bowls: lettuce, grains, beans, roasted beets, crumbled cheeses, olives, pistachios…you name it and we have featured it in these wooden showstoppers.

The black walnut tree is a rare, fine-grained, hardwood native to New England.  Black walnut wood is prized for its strength, deep rich color and straight grain.  Symbolically, the black walnut tree represents wisdom, knowledge and inspiration. Each piece is handmade in their Massachusetts workshop from upcycled New England trees. The round wooden bowls have a classic smooth edge for a more formal appearance.

Wood Care: 

  • Hand wash with mild soap and towel dry.
  • Apply mineral oil once a month to maintain the natural beauty of the wood.
  • Prolonged exposure to water can cause damage; please do not submerge in water or place in the dishwasher.
  • Common mistakes include letting old fruit and vegetables mold at the bottom of a bowl (this may stain) and putting a bowl/board in the oven.

Made from cherry, black walnut, spalted maple, and ambrosia maple hardwoods, each hand-made Spencer Peterman product is truly unique. Spencer Peterman crafts each bowl, board and tray by hand from fallen trees and burls found in his native western Massachusetts.
