    Hi Pete.

    Those look great, the matte finish enhances the somewhat " primitive" or more usable shape of them.

    Do you actually make templates out of real ones? or just eyeball them from pics?
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Thanks Tony. I have a load of downloaded pics from the internet pinned up in the shed and use them as examples of form and dimension. Tend to do them smaller as it involves hollowing and I haven't got any hollowing tools apart form a small hook.

    More good stuff, Pete. I don't really recognize the form of the first one (the shoulders are a bit sharper than I've accustomed to seeing), but the second one shows definite Acoma or Zuni influences (to me at least).

    Excellent work.

    Thanks Vaughan. I think the base should come on faster if that makes sense. I'll keep practicing.

    I'm not a turner or an expert in anything but They both look great. I do like the top of the first one and the base of the second one.
    Aloha,

    What's wrong with the bits in the middle?
