Functional Rating 4

This once-awkward piece of oak, from the fork of a tree branch, has been transformed into something I’m very proud to put my name to!

Its three little feet lift the piece off the surface and make it really interesting to look at from all angles.

What does the Functional Rating mean?

The Functional Rating runs from 1 - 5 and is my way of giving you an idea of how functional a bowl or platter is.

It depends on the type of wood, whether it has a smooth surface on the inside or is a more artistic piece with voids and inclusions. 

Some bowls are made to be very functional and some are not.  The functionality scale gives you a quick indication. 

Functional Rating

1 = Solely suitable as a display piece or art piece. 

2 = Suitable to hold large items such as fruit or bread.       May have large voids. 

3 = Suitable as a fruit bowl or for leafy salads. May have voids, but is robust. 

4 = Quite suitable for daily salads and the like.  Water-tight but may be finely turned or have a natural edge.

 5 = Suitable for almost everything including hot foods, even soup.  These items are robust and can be treated as real work-horses.
