The first pictur is a collection of spalted maple pots that I keep in my bedroom. As my skills have improved, it’s nice to pick up the older pots and think of ther 1/4” walls as thick :-) The newer ones are probably 1/8” or so. I’ve made two with the carved square openings after meeting with Michael Mocho at our club and then again at a Symposium. I have some ideas for other carved openings.
The second picture is a continuation on metal patina surfaces on turnings. It is about 4” x2’ turned through a 1/4” hole. the surface is created with Bondo and copper paint, which is then chemically transformed into the oxides producing the blues and greens. I’m looking to baffle the viewer (what the heck is it-wood, clay, metal?) and so far, only one person who saw the work had any idea what/how it was produced.
