Body, hat and Pom Pom were made from 1 piece of sycamore. The hat was dyed red and it was then finished with HS Danish Oil. The nose was the only separate piece and it was turned from a cypress pen blank.
This is a trio of angels I create to place as centerpieces on a table or fireplace mantle.
Base – ovangol, body – cherry with an African rosewood waist and painted sycamore wings. The wings are 1mm at the edge, 2mm in the centre to give support and pierced.
My Nativity scene, inspired by a design by Gerard Dubois
A small chestnut bowl, 125mm diameter, 50mm high, with some texturing applied to the base and rim and beading applied to the bottom, in a continuous cut, inspired by Les Thorne.
Ash branch 7 1/2” x5 1/2” coloured with intrinsic colours and iridescent paints from Chestnut! Enjoyed the process although it tested my skill level ?
I’m calling this one finger bowl as my fingers fit into the concave curves perfectly when i pick it up, not planned, but a happy accident. I love the figure in this walnut, it may just be my favorite turning to date.
