Small Treasures -a new exhibition

Small Treasures was an exhibition started by a dear friend of mine Ray Leier many years ago when he and business partner Jan Peters ran del Mano Gallery in Los Angeles in the US. Unfortunately, both have passed well before expected time BUT their legacy continues. Small Treasures is now a virtual exhibition accessible to all due to the wonders of the internet. Have a look and maybe you'll see a piece you'd like to own. It may just be one of my pieces.... Hope I got the link right this time, otherwise I need a kick up the .... or a lesson on how to get thse liknks right, I'm open to offers of the second, I already get enoigh of the foirst.

A new video!

Here is a new video that Shelton and I shot for Timbecon demonstrating the wonders of the Crown Spiralling Tools.

What a 'road kill' can become

Following the fortunate delivery of some highly figured Elm I couldn't help but turn as many bowls as possible, and do justice to both the wood and my friend who thought of me. Several bowls resulted and I 'cored' each to save timber from each so another another smaller bowl could be extracted rather than creating shavings for garden mulch. Eventually nothing goes to waste. These shots show one bowl straight off the lathe, then how it distorted. How about the colour once a food friendly, natural oil finish was applied?
