Repeats for Commerce

Obed Edom, in the form of a 12″ x 18″ linocut, is for sale on our Etsy Store finally.  Right now, I have 5 impressions available.  Also posted there, are a few bowls which I believe are worthy of consideration.  Thanks everyone for your support, encouragement and attention.  If you missed last week’s post, please give it a look.  I thought it was a good one, but it sort of went under the radar- or perhaps it wasn’t as nice as I fancied.

A bowl for Clive, a mantle for Tanner, and a spoon and a saddle (I am only responsible for the plaque, which is in hedge and walnut) for Harold.  This weeks bonus image is a little tree frog freshly emerged from my son’s tadpole nursery.  I trust you’ll forgive so many images of one bowl when you consider how stunning the character of the grain is from every angle.

A more singular post than is normal around here, but I am really into taking these high speed photos of spinning wood and stationary steel precipitating a diaspora of fibers and debris. This is a piece of a Kentucky Coffee Tree being made into a bowl.
