Welcome to From the Forum - Chosen by the MembersIn order to add an area of interest to the forums and to encourage interaction between the different forum sections, the forum members can post to our 'Members' Choice' thread to act as a showcase for a piece of work chosen by a member each week as their 'piece of the week'.This week's members' choice is ’Easy grip dip pen’ by Philip Bradley. Picked by Walter Hall, here’s what they had to say about the piece: “Much of the turned work we see nowadays is "art for art's sake" destined to sit on a shelf unused so it is refreshing to see an attractive item of practical use that has been given so much thought in terms of the suitability for purpose of its design. It is also good to see a pen of individuality that truly justifies the term hand crafted and which has not been made from a kit indistinguishable from scores of others. An honourable mention also goes to new member Les Symonds for his natural edged oak burr panel.”Congratulations again to Philip and we will bring you another chosen piece next week. In the meantime, you can find out more about the piece by clicking here.(PHOTOGRAPH COURTESY OF THE MAKER)
