    Finishing off some bits lying around

    I've had these two hollow forms hanging about waiting to be finished for a while and today was their lucky day.

    This one is pear with a banksia nut colar turned thin so the seed holes penetrate right through. [IIt's 6 1/2" tall[/I]

    This is hawthorn and had splits down the neck which have been filled with brass. Again 6 1/2" tall.

    Pete, both are beautiful. I would have liked to see a little bit of extra curve on the neck of the first piece. It looks more like a Y. Or maybe it appears so in the picture.

    Those are beauties Pete. I agree with more curve on the neck of the first one. Keep'em coming.

    Thanks both.I hadn't noticed that about the curve, it shows more in the photo than in real life (I just went and checked) but you are right, I was trying to follow the line of the body but could have bent it a little more perhaps.

    Wow, that hawthorn sure has some nice colors in it. I also like the pear/banksia combination. Nicely done on both counts, Pete.
