This cantine gourd is about 12" across and took about a week to carve, and trim with ponderosa pine needles, it's for sale:)

This photo was taken by Tim, and he captures the majestic beauty of New Mexico, we travel past this giant on our many trips to Texas. Never get tired of looking at this.
This beautiful bowl was turned from a birch burl
it's beautiful grains are magnified in it's fine finish,
Tim's work is amasing and we can't keep much of it around
as it's often requested for gifts and goes faster than he can find time to make it all.
Some of it I plan to post is long gone, but will be here for your enjoyment.
Here is a gourd purse I finished a while back, I plan to sell this, but being my first purse I am rather fond of looking at it,,,, isn't that always the way? Hopefully somebody will love it as I do,,,tee hee.

Day one of the new blog, so much to do! I plan to fill this with pictures of our artwork. Wood turning, metal art, ooak sculpts, gourd carvings, jewelry, and what ever else comes along. We are always scouting out inspiration and design ideas for our hands to try.
I will post pictures as often as possible for viewing. Please be patient I am new to this format, but am going to give a go. So this is the beginning of a new adventure, come along with me. As our job is one that takes us across the continent, I will try to share our sights with you as well. Today we are in transit to Oregon, then Calgary and back home to the beautiful Okanagan. Drop by again and see whats new,,,,,,till then
"imagine whirrled peas!"
