A lidded bowl that started out as a horribly cracked log. Ficus, like the last one. The lid/finial is one piece, from the same log. The lid/finial were end-turned. It’s finished in B.L.O./W.O.P./W.A.X. The little piece in the BG of photos 2-4 is the stub from the bowl. I don’t like to throw things away. Photo 6 was the first one I took. It’s backed by the other half of the log. The log was quartered. So it’s the other half of the half. The other half of the log became small pieces intended for end-turned objects, of which the lid/finial on this piece is one.So it’s one quarter of a half of a half.
The unusual thing about this is that I photographed it in broad daylight, instead of waiting til night, as I normally do.
So many words. I need a nap.
I may wind up blogging this piece to show what it came from. That Ficus is astoundingly pretty, innit?
