With the demise of my shop, which has closed down for a couple of months while the builders move in, I'm having to lay my stock off to galleries around the region. What has been noticeable has been how curators seem to be choosing scorched-and-scoured pieces, so I've made a few more recently, for a gallery submission that I'm currently preparing. Here's a few shots of the latest pieces in the Wood and Fire series.
The first (2 pics) is a deep bowl in punky, spalted beech, 29x16
Second is a wide rimmed bowl in oak, 36x9
Third is sycamore burr with scorched beads, 26x10
Fourth is a scorched bark-texture bowl, 37x9.

C&C always welcome.
Les

Education is important, but wood turning is importanter

I missed these (but I am officially on holiday!)
I like all of these, the top ones especially being reminiscent of my friend John Hodgson's work. He loves to bead and loves setting fire to things!
Class work as usual Les!
If the world keeps turning, so shall I.

Like Neil, I also missed these Les.

Again like the others that you showed on here a nice collection and it just goes to show that something as simple as scorching a piece can produce such a great piece of work
