Bowls & Boxes

Wayne Silva uses his woodturning skills to create bowls and lidded boxes. He uses a variety of woods, but specializes in Cocobolo for its rich grain and smooth finish. Some bowls are inlaid with turquoise, lapis, red coral or other stones.

The bowls shown below were selected for entry in the Fine Arts section of the 2007 New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque. The first bowl is Cocobolo with a rim of Ebony. The second is a set consisting of seven bowls and a platter, all of Cocobolo.

Nested Boxes

Nested boxes are a series of lidded boxes that get progressively smaller. The boxes fit inside one another, making a box in a box in a box...  This concept was inspired by the Russian “Matryoshka” dolls
