Really interested in the surface decoration.
The form in the center was created by laying down clay rings and pinching them together. The texture is fascinating.
The early pots were derived from gourde shapes.
Just took a week long road trip to check out several sites of the Ancestral Pueblo peoples. I was fascinated with the pottery at the Anasazi Heritage Center, so I will post a few pics over the next week. Here are a bunch of small pots with various motifs.
Setting butterfly keys in a book matched walnut table top.
Couple of pots roughed out.
My other little metal working project, a captive hollowing rig. I used the “Black Snake” plans from Captain Eddie. I don’t know if it will be too flimsy at the stand. Can’t wait to try it. I’m still trying to decide if I’ll get a laser or a video camera.
My client’s (neighbor) son doing the welding on a table base. That little Hobart is just barely powerful enough on a 120V circuit.
Doing some metal working. I have almost no idea what I’m doing. I tried to lay down a bead with my 110V wire feed welder and it was reallllly ugly. My client says her son can weld, so we are going to go with that.
Delighted to have The Workroom in Dallas displaying and, in theory anyway, selling my wares. Thanks Nick!
