Thread: Differant form

  1. #1

    Differant form

    Didn't like this at first but now I want to do more. 7 1/2 X 1 1/2. As you can see worm hole goes all the way through. When I turned the piece the worm was not there. What ya think of it?

    I like it. Worm hole has added character to the piece.

    I like it - kinda mid-century modern look to it.

    I like it cause it is different. Breaking the mold of the rounded edges.

    Makes me think the person that would be real good to have chime in on this topic would be Toni over in Spain. He is a Industrial Designer by profession and from what i learnt from these guys over the years, they get to know the trends and how curves or edges evolve almost like fashion.

    So you could be starting somthing there Dennis.

    As for worm hole, well for me its a part of the natural way the wooded ended up. I like it. The bowl aint going to be used to hold water.
    cheers

    I like your form... I've studied it pretty close and maybe when I get back out to the shop I'll try to copy.... I've done pieces that have the outside shape, but haven't hollowed the inside quite like yours.... I usually hollow just enough to take a tea light.

    and like everyone else, the worm hole add character to the piece.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Well Rob, I appreciate you confidence about me and I can't but chime in as you say.

    Denis, that is a great good looking bowl,what you have achieved here, is a "modern" look somewhat subdued by the lower part. To me it could be the starting point of a series in which you could play with the height and the top and bottom sections. ie. you could make bot curves concave, convex or one concave and the other convex.
    If you have access to a 3d software like sketch up. I would play with revolved sections, to get a feel of it and then refine them on the lathe.


    You could create a lip on the top following the same criteria. and depending on the height and where you put its ecuador line (major diameter section) you can achieve great results.

    As per the worm hole, heck! that must have been a big worm!
