Mug & plate
bungee turned and carved
1. The mug in my hand.
2. Shape turned on the bungee lathe.
3. My day out hiking by Loch Doon, what better place to sit and carve.
4. Here they are, mug and plate, ready for a meal.
5. Closed up.
6. 400 grid sandpaper and a honing strap was my tour honing gear.
This inspired me to this project, that I took with me on a 24 hours hike into the Scottish highlands, by a beautiful lake by the name of Loch Doon and I carved in the early hours after sleeping out in my hammock.
Drawing of the project, from my sketchbook.
Here is what I brought on my hike.
Wood, tools, a diamond plate and a strop loaded with compound for that razor sharp edge.
If this isn’t life, then I don’t know what life is. (My hammock up by Loch Doon).
Ohhh yes, and this ended up being a giant blister, I cut it open, but the rest are still here weeks after, reminding me the tour. ;-)
Hope this post can bring some inspiration, perhaps some mugs out there on the trails.
