Lidded Vessel With Patina #155


Lidded Vessel With Patina #155

Piece #155 – Maple – 5.5″ dia x 5″ – SOLD

This lidded vessel was my first attempt at combining turning and carving. The wood type is maple; a hard, white, plain figured, wood of no character. I turned the outside shape relativly quickly and separated the lid from the bottom. Once the bottom and lid were hollowed I laid out the “petals” around the top using the stops on my lathe to space them properly.

Using my Dremel Jig Saw, I carefully cut along the outside of the petals. This was pretty hairy as the piece is round and my jig saw table is flat. It took a little finessing. Once the basic design was cut I used my carving tools, hand held Dremel, and a lot of hand sanding to refine the petals. I finished it with a coat of S.W. sanding sealer.

The copper leaf gilding and patina finish I used is described elsewhere on my site.
