Category: November ’20: A Chalice and Touchy-Feely

Tom’s Touchy Feely bowl

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.

A Christmas chalice

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 👍

Is it real?

A little something made from a firewood log

My finger bowl – touchy feely

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.

Textured bowl – Martin copycat

Here’s a bowl I turned using Brazilian Cherry, very hard and dense wood. I used the arbortech mini grinder to texture and added some gold embellishing wax.

Chalice with a ring!

Autumn Chalice

Made from a 6 by 4 inch piece of sycamore . I gave it a heavy base as it is a chalice not a goblet.

A simple sycamore challice

A simple goblet. Sorry Chalice in sycamore with a bit of natural edge. Finished with YG and HS high gloss.
