This is a follow on from “half dish”.
We need to add a lid with a locating lip and still maintain the perfect sphere.
The lid is 1 piece,the knob has been turned with the lid. I rounded the back on the one and added a bit of “scatting”pyro as I call it, just very light scribbling with a very hot tip & keep moving quick so as not burn a hole.I also raised the bowl on this one to give it more profile. This is again a piece of old Kauri (not sure if I like the rounded form or not! it probably looks better shapr edged?)
The other is a piece of native Rimu, this is a bit bigger and heavily burnt with a Koru pattern.
The last photo probably gives it away. There were some comments about the straight edge joining half way up to under the dish, this was turned, the starting block was a rectangle (x 2)
None ofthe blocks were cut after turning they are straight of the lathe.
Any comments most welcome, thanks again for your interest
