A friend asked if I can make anything from the trunk of a ornamental tree that was damaged by a storm. after drying in my shop, I put the wood in my lathe and found that turning a bowl or plate was’nt possible. Inspired by Jennifer Shirley, I turned the sojourners in the photo. It was fun to do some off center turning and wood burning. like Steve in Marin…I too am a fan of spray lacquer,that is the finish on the sojourners.

These look really cool! But I have to ask a stupid question – what are sojourners and what are they used for (other than looking good)?

Yes, I saw Jennifer’s Sojourners; you know what I like about yours? The second figure, assumably the matron, has the head tilted to view the shorter, child like figures. That is So perceptive of the artist. She’s checking on her brood. Very Nicely Done, and it gives it a life-like quality beyond the wooden figures. Really gives it a kinetic quality rather than static. Great.
