Spalted Pecan vessel
approximate size is 6”H x 9”D
Here is the finished bowl I posted earlier when it was still in process of being worked on. This piece was a joy to work on as every time I stopped the lathe to check on the work I saw new wonders revealed! If you look closely you will see several “grub worm” holes, which I left alone for “effect”. Oh yes they were in there when I turned this piece and got “hit” by a few of them! (Full face shields a blessing!)
My dear wife took this over to show her brother and sis in law and they said “Tell him that he just lost this piece”. I took it as a great compliment but have not decided what I am going to do with this piece yet. I do want to savor this for a while longer!
Since I have just started turning and have not sold any of my works yet, I am still trying to figure out how to price them. This particular one I am not inclined to let go cheap as it is exceptionally well marked but have no idea on any possible range of prices. Any suggestions?
Thank you for looking and I welcome any comments.
