Sangreal

From the Song of the Ancient, here is a small turned and carved vessel in black walnut and osage orange. The idea isn’t fully formed or unified, but it is advancing. As the yellow osage wood ages it will turn a deep red-orange, nearly as dark as the walnut.

Show Bowls

A few bowl turning pictures as I have been producing for a part in a few shows this fall.

Below is a stack including walnut, persimmon, ash, cypress and two elm species.

A few more added from above on the workbench, the same species as above with the addition of a few crab-apple.

Hollowing a large cypress bowl on the lathe using a 1/2 bowl gouge.

A few blow-ups from experimenting with the grind on a smaller bowl gouge.
