A follow on from the “cook pot” series,
I was trying to get that rough fired out of the kiln look, reasonably happy I guess.
these have been fun to make, but I guess it’s time to move along to something new.
Any C & C’s welcome
thanks for the look

Beautiful piece or should I call it pot PETE !
You should be extremely happy with this ,the shape and colouring is something and on first look I said yes that is a clay pot .
One question are the handles fitted after or part of the turning ?

Love this piece. Wood made to look like stone! Fantastic.
Let’s have some more.

Thanks Guys, Klaus the handles are part on the turning, points between have been carved away which is why I left the line around raised to add to the rough look

I like the inner colors in the wood, definitely has that ole smokey pot look Looks like there could be something good inside, but I think that someone beat me to them. I had visions of one of those pot fried steaks you talked about before Pete.

Nailed it Pete. I would have said Asian pot and never thought of wood had I not seen it here on Lumberjocks. Brilliant finish, superb piece. Thanks for sharing

You succeeded in making this look like you wanted. I thought it was a cast iron pot

Beautiful Pete.
Even after zooming the photos I was not sure if it was wood.
Thanks for sharing this great piece with us.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
