Little Brother Re-do
Apr 26th, 2013 at 3:32pm
 
Quite a while back I did a large segmented vessel and a few months later a minature of it.  I was never happy with the shape of the minature.  I focused so much in the technical aspect of making little rings I lost my way on the shape!  I have now gone back and did a re-do of Little Brother.  First attempt is on the left.  They both have the same number of segments as Big Brother, 1711.  The only difference is I used ebony in place of walnut and Osage Orange in place of canary wood.  All the feature rings were cut on the bandsaw with a 3/8-18 tooth blade.  The segments in my hand were rejects but it shows you what I was dealing with.  Questions and comments welcome.

Steve, this is a much more common occurrence than you might think. It can be difficult try to balance the technical portion and the artistic portion of your piece. I have seen countless numbers of segmented pieces that, though were technically wonderful, lack the esthetics that seem to draw you to the piece.
I applaud you on not only a great piece, but that you went back and did it again, this shows a devotion to the craft, well done.  Smiley

Ed I am looking all the time at shapes.  You are so right.  The classic shapes that have been used for centuries seem to draw me in the quickest!

You are so right, the last piece I posted is testament to that. I'm working on correcting that on the next one.
