More brass turnings!
Yesterday I stopped by my dads work to do some more brass turning! He said doing a larger piece would be easier to start with than a real tiny one. So we choose a larger drawing I made, to start with.
We had a lot of fun doing it and I'm so impressed with his skills! I knew he has a very good metalworker-education but to see it in action is jawdropping! He turned this by hand! No computers or anything involved!
The result of yesterdays afternoon you can see in the pictures. It is a floor vase.
It is not yet finished, we will put it back on the lathe and polish it. Then we'll cut the vase from the bar. In the picture below, I cut off the part of the picture where we will also cut off the bar part, so you get an impression of what it will look like.
As you can see I have put some extremely non-matching roses in there, but you can also see a tiny 'maroon coloured' start of my new flower project in there ;)
I'm going to make a very large flowerarrangement and it'll be large enough to fill this wonderfull floor vase to the brim. So I'm extra happy about this first turning attempt of dad and me! See how nice the maroon and brass go together?!
I'm so lucky to have such a handy dad :D
