bowls & burls

February 21, 2018

Steve Noggle

After Steve Noggle discovered woodturning, the North Carolina craftsman turned a favorite pastime into a fulltime passion.

The artist: Noggle was interested in trees and wood long before he graduated with a forestry degree from Louisiana State University in 1976. After a few years as a timber cruiser in the Pacific Northwest, Noggle returned to his home state, where he spent 25 years as an engineer in the furniture industry. He left to pursue his “turning” craft and has a workshop behind his house in Morganton.

The materials: Primarily local domestic hardwoods such as maple, cherry and walnut. But also exotic burl wood from Australia, Africa and South America.

The goods: Lathe-turned bowls and vessels that include hollow forms and natural-edge pieces.

What’s popular: The ambrosia maple salad bowls ($195 to $295). Also natural-edge bowls, particularly out of any burl woods, such as maple burl, cherry burl and eucalyptus burl ($100 to $1,000).

Where to buy: At the Ariel Gallery (arielcraftgallery.com) in downtown Asheville. Also at Artisphere (May 11-13) in Greenville, SC. To see Noggle’s work, visit stevenoggle.com
