 I have not played with Resins since I did living ponds 5 years ago ( can be seen on my website )
 so thought I would have another go with all the new additives available now. The Alder cones In
 the bowl and pens were inspired after seeing a George Watkins Box .
 The Bowl is 5"dia, The Boxes are about 2" dia
 Comments as always Welcome
 Kind Regards
 Tony

Tony, Those are stunning pieces and I especially like the two lefthand pieces inthe top photos. The colours really work well together and the relative simplicity of them do not detract from the colour combinations..

I would love it if you could share some of your technique for making the blanks, what resin do you use and is it pressure of vacuum cast.

I am gathering the bits n bobs to make my own vacuumchamber and plan to try resin myself shortly.

Some very nice pieces. I presume you did the casting yourselves. I agree that George Watkins is an inspiration to me as well for his resin wood combination. I have cast my own pen blanks but that is as far as I have got at the moment.

   Thank You Derek... Yes all the casting was done by me .... very messy in it SmileSmile.

Well I think that poor old George as some competition Tony

As always great work but the bits that stand out for me are the bowl and what I guess to be a box to the right of the bowl the cones/wood really blend well together with the resin.

All the best

    No Chance of that Ed...... Think the pieces on this thread work out at £100 + each...... I could
    have bought two dozen off George for what this learning curve cost....... After saying that though
    I am rather proud of the bowl.
    Kind Regards
    Tony
