Angel Winged Bowl

This week I tried to change the winged Cherry Bowl as most people look at it.  Most winged bowls are shallow and it seems to be the nature to have a very even cupped out bowl if you want to have wings.  However I decided to try something different.  I cut the bowl part of the winged bowl a little deeper, which gives it more of a bowl feeling, but kept the wings that gives the traditional look.  The outcome was fantastic.  The wings reach to the sky, and the bowl has a depth that can not be found in the traditional winged bowl.  I was also able to leave some of the bark on the edges of the bowl, which gives it a rich character.  Take a look and give me your thoughts and any suggestions you may have.DSC_0143

In the weeks to come, I am going to try something I saw on a clip from one of the turning sites.  This will give me a vase with wings.  I will upload progress photos, as I think this will take several weeks to complete.

If anyone has any different techniques, please let me know, and thanks for reading.

This weekend

I am heading up to the shop this weekend and not much to get done on the cabin.  This will give me more time to finish a new cherry bowl I have in the works.  This one should be a little larger that the one on the website.  From the rough turn, it appears that it will have very beautiful grain.  I am planning to price this new bowl at a little over $20.00.  I am trying to hold the prices down to help out, with the economy being the way it is.  I do not know of anyone selling their bowls for what I have priced these at.  I must be crazy, as someone told me.

I will try to get the rest of the inventory uploaded so people can see the entire inventory I have at this time.  If you are looking for something special for someone, let me know and I can see if I have one or can make one for you.
