    Taking a breaki

    Been doing all the things that people want (hopefully) to buy and so decided to play.



    Sycamore turned wet. Ebonised foot and burnt rim. Approx 8" tall, 6 1/2" max dia. and turned to 4mm thick.

    Beyond my ability and comprehension. But, smart enough to see a beautiful piece when it is put in front of me and this is one beautiful piece of work!!

    Very Nice Pete. If you ask me, your play time produced something that will sell for sure!

    That's smokin' hot, Pete. Very nice work, on both the technical and aesthetic aspects.

    I don't believe it, I posted on another forum and it sold in ten minutes though I was just showing it as on here. Arty stuff just doesn't sell that way here in the UK. Not that I'm complaining mind
