Been shopping at Turnings In miniature
I have been shopping again!! Well, you know I love wood turned miniatures and hubby, although fab at turning life size bowls and candlesticks, just can't do them in miniature! Don't tell I said though, he'll get all narky and won't make me my furniture!! LOL
Anyway, back to this glorious little hollowed out bowl and elaborate lid, isn't it wonderful? The pictures just don't do it justice, it is so shiny and polished. The main wood is spalted , so the pattern in the wood is different all the way around....
The bowl is hand turned by Tom who is a fellow AIM member and he has just opened up a new shop on the UK Artfire Site. His shop is called Turnings In Miniature and if you click on the shop name you will go straight there. If your quick, Tom has another spalted wooden bowl and lid on his site which is very similar to mine :) Tom's prices are great and delivery all the way from Canada is very quick too.
Tom also sells in Etsy but he explains that his listings there will be sporadic due to him now moving over to his Artfire Store
Then there is Tom's blog where you can see what he is making and you can also learn about Tom's current projects which are a hand built Tudor house and a Victorian house that will possibly become an art gallery for some of his turnings and stone sculptures.
It is very well worth a visit to all three of the links I have popped on for Tom... Christmas is coming... you just know you need a fabulous hand turned bowl in your stocking :)
As for me, I have 'stuff' to do, so I won't be posting on the blog for a few days, but I will be answering emails..I think I have caught up with replying to everyone now? ! If I have missed you out..yell !!
Hope you all have a great weekend,
