Richard Pratchler , Gary von Kuster and Rick Hounjet have all been busy creating wonderful objects for us to drool over.


Richard Pratchler

I did do some turning.  Top is 15 inches in diameter and 21 inches tall.  Made from Elm.  The top is epoxyed together.  The top is made from two branches growing side by side.  Finished with Stay Clear.


Gary Von Kuster

I was quite taken with Rebecca’s method of applying and combining dye colors and looking through an AAW magazine I was also influenced by Roger Bennett’s bowls so Sunday morning after getting our sourdough bread going I turned this little bowl in Ash and dyed it in red and yellow. I had mixed up the dye on Saturday night using double the amount of powder to make a real deep colour.


Rick Hounjet

This is made from Box Elder, turned and dyed. The scenery is done with pyrography.
