With everything wooden and stumplike all the rage these days, it’s not surprising that Italy-based sculptor Ernst Gamperl’s handcrafted Italian oak vases and bowls ($600-$1,200) are flying off the shelves at Morlen Sinoway’s Fulton Market gallery. But what makes these vessels different is the artist’s touch. Gamperl hand-turns each vessel while the wood is wet, resulting in unique and truly organic shapes. Morlen Sinoway Atelier, 1052 W. Fulton Mkt., 312-432-0100.
