Another successful colouring

I am so pleased with this Hollow form, it is exactly the shape I wanted and the colours, inspired by a piece by Phil Irons I saw in a book, have turned out just perfect, plus I have managed to get a first class finish using Chestnut spray lacquer and the buffing wheels, the piece is destined for a nearby art gallery (where it will be for sale) but for a day or two I want to enjoy it at home!

The lower images show the piece prior to colour being applied

Back to work.

After a short break I am getting back into the turning and the latest creation has pleased me much, as well as others who have seen it so far (I know colouring wood is anathema to some, but I really like it!)

So, here is the Deep Blue Bowl.
