John is back in his shop, turning (pun) out bowls and weed pots (vases for dried stuff) and other stuff. This one caught my eye. It's from a piece of oak, grabbed from a pile of firewood.
I love seeing the bark with bits of lichen and moss still attached.
And the grain is really cool-- and will show up even better once this piece is fully dry and oiled or varnished.
I saw this shallow bowl (sassafras? he's not sure) in his shop and was smitten with the flower (looks like a poppy to me) image caused by a knot and a bit of rot.
And when you turn it over, there's a rooster... at least that's what I see.
These are lovely, and the bowl with the tree's own art coming out is very fine indeed!
I love these.
This is great stuff. It always attracts me.
I somehow missed the fact that John was, in addition to all his many other skills and talents, a wood turner. And, to judge by these examples, an excellent one!
I love your photos, descriptions, and wonderings. Thanks!
