…..‘tis the season - #2

Haven’t made this year’s ornaments as yet, so here is another old one.

Ash disc ornament (shallow bowl) & icicle. Off-center turning, textured and acrylic paint. Approx. 2 - 2¼”ø x 6½-7” h.

Another favorite – made in 2005. On this one I didn’t use the “trivet” method on the back side – just turned away material until the design pattern appeared. Very thin, light, and delicate.

Thanks, Chris. These ornaments were made in 2004 & 2005, but I’m still using the same hardware. They are all jewelry findings – very small screw eyes (probably difficult to source these days), small jump rings, and eye pins for the hangers. On this large photo I notice the screw eyes have tarnished a little. :(
