20151018_173249_smlThe rough carving of the flowers has been done and now I move onto the leaves. I spent some time today doing the layout and have also started doing the leaves themselves. I like how this is coming!

20151004_175633_smlI spent some time this week working to improve my workshop organization. This came from our old kitchen but the shelves were too deep. They have now been resized. A couple more to be done.

Following the Irene exhibition, I realised that folk really liked the flowers. So I am now busy with a new piece. Started as part of a demo at the Woodworking Association of Pretoria exhibition.

20150927_172524_smlThe vessel has been turned from Jacaranda and will have panels of flowers with dividers in between. Shown here is the rough carving with lots of detailing to go. Seeing that the cut outs have been done I reckon the hardest part is over.

_DSC5885Turned and carved from Jacaranda, stands about 190 mm ( 7 1/2″) tall. The choice of title I hope, is obvious and reflects the absolute need for joy and humour within society.

This piece has stretched me – it may beĀ  a while before I do something like this again:)

I am having to refinish this – it has come out blotchy and now has to be sanded off. ThisĀ  needs to be ready for the upcoming exhibition.
