Well I have managed to get a small amount of time at the lathe to keep the work moving.
Here are four pieces. Three are ready for texturing and colouring with the forth already at this stage.
These will be variations of my Japanese inspired work. Not liking to sit still, I try, if possible develop and refine my work even only if by the smallest of detail.
The finials for these will be again slightly different and plinths will be made for them to sit.
But then I may change my mind by the time I get back so I will have to see.
The last pic shows some of the detail.
