Following on from the Pedestal Bowl i was inspired by a Terra Sigillata Form for the Roman period of AD40-AD80, this piece is textured again with the Sorby Spiralling and Texturing Tool, then Sprayed with Chestnut Spirit Stain Black, then Gold Gilt Cream added to highlight the Texturing. The piece is made from London Plane.
One of my new works, inspired by the Romans, it is a pedestal bowl, which measures 170mm x 140mm made from Sycamore, which has been textured with the Sorby Spiralling and Texturing system, Black Spirit Stain and then gold gilt cream added to enhance. This piece also achieved the coveted honour of the Cover of the Day on the World of Woodturners Website.
Just a couple of pieces of new work just recently turned.
This is a Flamed Beech Platter, the wood was locally sourced from the Ullapool Woodturning Centre
And then a coloured Sycamore tall bowl which has been textured with the Sorby Spiralling System, then coloured with Black Spirit stains and then gold gilt cream added to the texturing. the lower photograph is a close up of the texturing which is in 3 distinctive bands. Today this piece was chosen as Members Choice on the Woodworkers institute, this honour is the for the fourth time this year
This bowl is made from Birch, which can be a very bland wood, however i decided to add a little bit of colour, and so started to use the Jo-Sonja Irridescent paints as it had been a while, and this is the creation made.
