A gang of masked woodturners from Hub City Turners took over part of Market Mall on Sunday about 5:00 pm. They brought with them beautiful turned pieces of wood and filled the 8 display cubes surrounding the indoor golf course at the mall. This was a planned and very coordinated activity that took a year to come to fruition. It was originally planned for a year ago but with the pandemic raging, all the turned pieces had to be secreted away in basements and closets and workshops for a whole year until now when Jim (last name kept secret to protect the innocent) sent out the word to the well trained and patient group “Sunday February 28, Market Mall”. It was a scramble as these almost lost or misplaced works of art were dug out, dusted and delicately transported to the location of this latest Hub city turners exhibition.
I turned this piece of Box Elder and dyed it with 6 colours: purple, blue, red, orange, yellow and a little black.
