Gowanus-Based Woodworker Phil Gautreau at Kaia

Spalted Sweet Gum Bowl
During March, Yorkville's South African-themed Kaia Wine Bar, which hosts a monthly marketplace for local businesses, artists and entrepreneuers, will feature Gowanus-based woodworker/designer Phil Gautreau.

Opening on March 12 at 6:30 PM, the show will present Gautreau's sleek, modern, one-of-a-kind hand-turned wooden bowls and serving boards -- like those he made for Kaia of reclaimed wood from trees downed by Superstorm Sandy in Green-Wood Cemetery.

The event is free and open to the public.

For more information or to register for the event, email Suzaan@kaiawinebar.com.

Gautreau, from a family of woodworkers, grew up in a home that his father and grandfather made by hand. He typically uses locally-sourced and reclaimed woods for his bowls, re-purposing the scraps to make his polychrome wooden boards.

Gautreau'’s serving boards were featured in the December, 2013 edition of Edible Manhattan Magazine, and selected as an Editor's Pick by Interior Design Magazine at DUMBO's prestigious BKLYN DESIGNS Show.

Kaia Wine Bar serves locally-sourced seasonal South African-inspired small plates, local meats and cheeses, craft beers, and Southern Hemisphere New World wines with a South African focus. For more information, visit Kaia's website.
