CRAFT: Crafting with Nature
chebib logbowl 1 Doha Chebibs Log Bowls
Calgary-based Doha Chebib’s Log Bowls combine nature’s rough surfaces with smooth, glossy depressions, lending them an almost storybook quality. The 28-year-old University of Alberta design graduate turned to co-members at Edmonton-based Loyal Loot Collective, where she’s collaborated since 2004, to help execute her idea. After hand-selecting fallen and discarded logs that include wood from local birch, mountain ash, and willow trees, the groups dries them naturally for six-months — leaving the bark intact — before handing them over to their dedicated woodworker, Ken, for turning. The bowls, which vary in height and range 2–10 inches in diameter, are then hand-painted inside using colorful high-gloss acrylics and finished with a water-based sealant.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
