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.
Burr Oak bowl that was chosen as members choice by the woodworkers institute
