Brad Sells carvings *PIC*

John Lucas
>I've spent the afternoon shooting a bunch of Brad Sells carved bowls. I know this is not turning but the techniques he uses to shape these are exactly the same way we would modify a turned bowl piece.

They are extremely hard to photograph because the finish is so smooth. Not real glossy but a very shiny satin. These are 1/4" thick everywhere. It takes a lot of skill and patience to do that.

He has changed how he mounts them to the metal base. Now he's using 2 rare earth magnets imbedded in the bottom.

The small one is about 7" tall and the biggest one is about 18" long.

I thought you might enjoy seeing these.
