In your hands, these are beautiful works of art. Technique is one thing but you are the other.

It takes time and patience to post a blog???? LOL!

I’m not a turner, don’t own a lathe, but I can appreciate the genius of this design!

Love the turned vases!! I’m interested in purchasing one of your shells with the display stand. I would like to know the price and the range of color choices. I’m looking for one which is brown/burnt orange/rust/golden….in that color range.

Thanks for your help,

Have your say...
