a small view of the process

lathe perspective

So this is my usual perspective when I’m at the lathe. It’s sort of like a potter’s wheel…but for wood…and sideways…. This view is a bit challenging at first. It’s just a little bit…off. However, this slightly askew viewpoint allows for creativity to flow because I’m forced to look at something in a different and unaccustomed way. And I wind up with something that has a certain flow, balance and hopefully beauty….
