Thread: two new spalted beech forms

    two new spalted beech forms

    hello folks
    here are two new pieces- one was made a few weeks ago and carved/textured today- the other was made today and will dry out over the next week or so.
    sorry the pics aren't great as it was dark by the time i left the workshop so i've had to use artificial light.
    both forms are about 6" wide by 5 or 6" tall

    Both are great but the carved bowl is just magnificant.

    Which tool did you use to texture it?

    Those are both beautiful forms. The carving on the second piece is interesting, especially the opening. I really like both of them.

    George.
    I like them both and hope you will post them again after you apply the finish (if you are going to finish them).

    Great work on both, George. The textured one really catches my attention. The treatment around the mouth of the opening is very unique...I like it.

    thank you for all of your kind comments

    Mohammad-I used a mixture of hand carving and the foredom tool to craete the texture and rib's

    Ted- they are finished- i use lemon oil which gives a natural look
