Hollow forms

I’ve been enjoying making hollow forms recently.  This is just a sampling of some of the recent ones.

Another cottonwood form.  I like how layering various colors of dye brings out the figure in cottonwood.IMG_4783.jpg

Cottonwood Bowls

These are great examples of why I love to turn cottonwood.  The figure is just fantasitc.

The larger bowl is about 11″ diameter.  IMG_4019.jpg

 

 

This smaller one is about 4″.

Crazy Color Cottonwood Bowl

I just love the figure that you sometimes find in Cottonwood.  I decided to use some dye on this piece to bring out that figure.  The result has hints of green, yellow, blue and red, and really highlights the figure in the grain on one half of this bowl.

Cottonwood Tesla Bowl

Bowl from native Colorado Cottonwood.    Lichtenberg fractal patterns burned around the rim.

The bowl is 10 1/2″ diameter.

This tree was rescued from a tree-trimer’s “free firewood” pile.
