Born on an Indiana dirt farm in 1913, Bob Stockdale was a pioneer in the art of fine wooden bowls, legendary for his exotic woods, unique shapes, and sumptuous finishes. Stockdale described his methods in a Q&A format to author Roszkiewicz before his death in 2003 at the age of 89. Valuable for those who make or love crafts.
