Appalachian Kintsugi

John's at it again--turning inadvertent cracks into turquoise accents.  (Sandy, your acorn is getting its finish coats of polyurethane.)

This pot is locust from a fallen tree. It has an insert with a frog for making a little flower arrangement.

Around here, locust is valued for fence posts and firewood--but it has a really beautiful grain.

This votive candle holder is turned from a limb of Black Walnut--which is light on the outside and dark inside. I think the turquoise here looks like a waterfall.

As for me, I'm continuing to edit bookshelves. Upstairs, still, in the SciFi and the YA. Of course, there's a lot of reading involved-old favorite Andre Norton has my attention now.

And I take the occasional break from reading and sorting to work on watercolors. All this YA and fantasy has me working on a fantasy scene...now if I just don't mess it up when I add color.

Beautiful wood working! Love the mage trekking to the sunrise (or set) with her dog. Those trees look like they are part of your own view!

Oh, these are so beautiful! Thanks for the update on my acorn. ��
