Turning Archive 2008
More experimenting with shape and form on large vessels. This piece is Spalted Red Maple Burl and is 13" high x 9"dia x 1/8" wall. The collar has a 1 ¾” opening and the base is 1 3/4” dia. I try to hide the base by bringing the catenary curve all the way around the bottom then cut in the base.
The max diameter is above center at 7 ½” height point. I think the piece would have been better with the max diameter higher? I applied 6 coats of Waterlox to darken the light areas and the black lines. Please comment on shape & form etc.
