I was trying to replicate a sort of Asian cook pot, with a cast / pottery roughish look, not sure if it has worked so please rip it to bits.
Made for some crappy old kauri lying around, a piece of bamboo, some Josonya’s acrylic a bit of gilders paste, about 3 1/2” high
Thanks for the look

It is very nice and I like it. Is it stained from outside or double layered?

Looks like an iron pot to me. Well done

Would you say that it’s made of wood? I think not!
You make beautiful things Pete!

That is a cool design. The pot and the swept up lid make it a very distinctive look. I may have to borrow that swept up lid idea! Very nice piece. I wish I had some crappy old kauri laying around, too!

Cheers, Jim

No worries Pete. You nailed it. It has “the look”.
You are so lucky to have Kauri to work with. Beautiful tree, beautiful wood.
Thanks for posting this.

This looks very nice, Pete. The Asian look is very apparent.

Thanks for the positive comments Guys, Jim the body is Kauri, but I used some mahogany for the lid, I was playing with different timbers & the finish, the mahogany has a more open grain & I was interested to see the difference.
You know this whole piece started when I found a small bamboo stake in the back of the wood pile & it suggested Asian & just went from there??

I think you captured the look you were after quite nicely. The shape of the pot and lid are quite pleasing and the bamboo handle reinforces the look you were after. I’d say it worked out very well!

It certainly reminds me of some of the cookware that I used to see on the San-pans over in Viet-Nam Pete, good job on this. Maybe a big black skillet next???
