flower *PIC*

John Lucas
>Here is my latest turning. I want to play with making flowers of my own origin so I will be experimenting with different things as I have time. This one has an inside out turned platter for the flower and the stem is turned on 2 centers and then carved a little. The base was turned and carve a little also.

I'm not real happy with this one so I'm making sketches to improve it. The lines just don't flow very well and the stem slipped in my clamps when the glue was setting so it doesn't have as much tilt as I had planned. The strings are fish line and have a good idea of how to put some color on the tip on the next piece.
