About "Gnus Alert"

I am exploring the world of decorated woodturning and while a platter is an obvious object to provide a surface to decorate, bowls can be less successful. They have undefined fronts and backs and are generally viewed below eye level so the decoration is obscured. This is a square rimmed offset bowl so, when placed on a desk, shelf or table, the rim stands at an angle and presents the image to the viewer. A group of Wilderbeest on guard. Are they guarding the contents of the bowl, a precious paperclip perhaps or are they huddled below the sun. The gilding in the bowl suggests so.

About Roy

Roy Gibbs

Originally from Ipswich in the UK, I emigrated in 1979, working for a British company, and remained here in this beautiful, exciting country ever since. I live on the edge of the Moot valley with a vista of the Magaliesberg mountains and a garden full of birds. Karee, Hookthorn and Pink Ivory trees grow around the house, Stamvrug and Milkwood on the hillslopes behind us.
I have been woodturning for 25 years and in the last few years I have been incorporating pyrography into my work to the extent that my turning is becoming incorporated into my pyrography. It delights me that I can combine my love of wildlife with working with wood and that I can see so many avenues to explore in the future. Finding ways to combine these 2 skills into desirable art work is a very fulfilling occupation. I hope you enjoy what you see and I welcome any comments, complimentary or not.

None yet but at the 2019 symposium of the Association of South African Woodturners my work was placed in both decorative and woodturning categories.
