    Yes Gus, very imaginative work!! It takes lots of skill to do that sort of work.

    I think Ern is right. Lightening the pieces up by removing more bulk will add a touch of delicacy and mystery.

    Default Bowl turning

    Throwing yourself out there to be critiqued is a great thing. While no one is going to say that your a bad turner or you don't know what your doing or worse, you can only work to your ability and to the capacity of your lathe. It can take years to truely get your eye in, to turn true flowing shapes, to get your hands working where your mind is going or where the blank takes you. If you truely love woodturning as I know you guys do, nothing beats the satisfaction of producing something in your own workshop. There are many great books out there and Raffans is a good one. I use it when I want inspiration. Its worth it weight in gold if your a bowl turner. Look for inspiration everywhere in pottery, car design, nature etc. Still think the best shape I've seen is the misses (don't tell her I said that). Beautiful shapes are out there, you see them every day. Practice makes perfect you've just got to work at it. Here is one of mine. I could have sold it a dozen times, it doesn't impress me and isn't on show, but I still use it to inspire me to do better. Interested in what you think. Go for it....

    Like the shape of that Bob!!

    Looks like you have achieved good even thickness in the wall and I like the way
    the wall tapers in at the top.

    I think the trouble with such a design is, though pleasing to the eye, is its lack
    of fitnes for practical use. Still, great for decorative purpose and there's nowt
    wrong with that.
