A lot of Pre & Post Turning work gone into that piece Philip, very time consuming.

Thanks for your comment Chas. Yes it was a time consuming process but I do the work for myself so there are no time constraints in what I produce. Most of my experiments end up in the bin anyway.

This piece is more than just an experiment, it is the first in a new direction I am taking to enable me to continue working creatively.

I keep coming back to this piece. I like the shape and work that has gone into it but for me personally, there is too much black I would like to have seen some form of contrast.

The piece is photographed, high contrast black and white, to accentuate the form, shapes and textures. In reality the piece is a soft, matt, dark brown. I don't think colour is that important in this case but understand and appreciate your comment. We have all got used to colour nowadays and forget that in the past most pictures were published in black and white with shades of grey. Maybe it was a mistake in a moment of reminiscence on my part.

Great piece the photo taken against the piece of A4 printing paper makes the form really stand out I think and there appears to be a lot of natural shadow . Sometime the colour on the screen does not show true on mine it is showing as a silvery black it may be the lighting . Well done Philip I like your experiments it keeps the mind working .

Cheers Ian

Thanks Ian and Chris for your comments. 

I was expecting some questions/observations on the use of 3D printed wood in combination with conventional turning. To my knowledge this is the first time it has occurred in a posting. Silence is golden as the saying goes so I have to assume there is no interest in innovation. For a variety of reasons, this and other tech solutions will become my way forward creatively but instead of posting on Forums I guess it might better to revert to my Blog and Social Media from now on.

I didn't comment on the 3d printed part in isolation to the rest as it really set the rest of and looked a part of it . I admire the skill that goes into setting up the program to do this but the cost and tech skills I don't have . Even though not many comment I would suggest a lot look and we get ideas for other projects from what we see but don't copy so kept them coming I for one look forward to your comments and pieces of art do you sell through a Gallery.
