Pottery is made by building something up, and woodturning is achieved by peeling away. Working collaboratively, we started to discover the skill and scope of each other’s art. Discussing colours and texture variations opened up more and more possibilities and enthusiasm. Here is a blend of colours found on the seashore from the rocky shoreline going into the smooth water. The crown is of elm, grown near the sea. The threaded insert and the lid are puriri as this very hard wood holds the thread very well.
