Upright #2

I haven’t turned the lathe on for over 6 months so a bit rusty.
This is a follow on from an earlier piece titled “Upright”
A lidded hollow vessel in NZ Rimu, the two side sections are carved and fixed to a black corian leg.
The vessel is again fixed to the leg via a couple of rose head copper nails cut down.
Thought I would add a lid & finial to give a bit more lift & a point of difference.
O/all height is about 220mm, or a bit under 9”.
Any comments or thoughts are welcomed

Awesome! Hate to see what you’d come up with if you didn’t turn in a year ;)

You have such art within you and the skills to bring it forth!
If you can, stay with your lathe and show us what we can do if we try really hard…

Well worth the wait Pete, that is great, like the nice clean lines and the modern art look. Nice use of the corian, really adds to it. Wonder how something like that would work with plywood.

Wow, Pete, I like that. And the height of the finial doesn’t overpower the vessel. It looks more ‘complete’. It’s just beautiful!

Now that is an amazing creation! Makes me want to get a lathe. (but then I wouldn’t know where to begin to create something like this) Maybe in my next life.

Your distinctive, elegant style betrays this as your piece at the very first glance Pete.
I always know your work at first glance.
..... and it never ceases to bring a smile of admiration to my face.

Art, just great art.

Thanks Pete.
