It is in his Francis Peninsula studio on the Sunshine Coast of Canada that most of Plumb Bob’s work can be found.
His work has been featured in a number of top decor magazines, and earned him several awards.
Bob turns a variety of work including one-of-a-kind bowls and vessels along with his unique gift items.
Mr. James also provides turned parts for local furniture makers and millwork shops.
The majority pieces are created from local trees that have succumbed to wind, disease, or urban expansion. I derive a great amount of pleasure from making things of beauty.
Plumbbob finds working with wood analogous to working with people. Each piece of wood is unique, and quite frequently has a mind of it’s own. It’s sometimes a challenge to find and expose the inner beauty, but it is an enjoyable and rewarding process.
