Class with Alain Mailland
This week we had Alain Mailland at Ecole Escoulen wood turning school in France again. We learnt so much! Carving, texturing, steam bending, finishing and turning. The man is a legend and an awesome teacher.
The blue purple coloured thing is the prototype for what will be my end of course exam piece.
The fish and tree flower still have many hours of carving, sanding and finishing to go.
The Viking bowl is one of my favorite pieces I have created that was bleached outside and sandblasted.
The natural edge vase is green Blueberry that was turned and sandblasted.
And I made some small bowls just because I wanted to play with different stains and finishes.
