Candel Tray & Lidded Vessel
I like a challenge and this piece of Elm was certainly just that. Encased in a sealing resin well out of round balance and thickness, I was given it by a friend. Hughie thanks enjoyed it very much. The natural formed inclusions added to the fun of turning as they do go right through and across one segment. I decided the shape almost on first sight of the blank and its end use. A glass tray I had suited the purpose, a trial of candle style a shorter one needed.
A length of spalted English Oak approx 50x50x300 quartered and glued together for the main body of this vessel, adding Jarrah foot, finial and neck with a Jacaranda stem. The lid I am not to happy with and may change.
