Brass turnings

My father got some large brass bars, and we're busy turning miniature vases and bowls out of it!

My dad has an engine rebuilding company and so he also has a large range of wonderfull machines, including a huge lathe (to make turnings on). It is meant to use for engine parts.

He told me to just draw some designs on paper and then we can start turning together. But the past week was so busy for me, I couldn't stop by his place. But surprise surprise, he made a litte vase for me anyway! It was just to test the possibilities but I'm very happy with it! Isn't that a sweet thing he did!?

It's very heavy and so pretty, the picture doesn't do justice!
The possibilities are endless so I can't wait to make some more together!
