While visiting in Houston in June, Cecil Arnold very generously gave me a roughed and dried Bradford pear bowl. It finally made it to Idaho via truck some weeks later. Last week while trying to put some embellishment on the rim, the piece of wood I was using for frictioning broke driving my left forefinger into the rim and splintering the rim. One of the splinters ended up in my left forefinger. I endured several hospital visits and a couple of days of IV antibiotics to fight off the infection.
So here's my Texas-Idaho collaboration.......Bradford pear....about 7" in diameter and 2 inches high ....finish 2 coats of Antique oil......Ain't no Stinson....but it's finished....
Thanks again Cecil!
