Pedestal Bowl

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.
