I couldn't help but notice that about 1/3 of the calendar submissions for 2016 have been embellished in some way, not counting segmented and items with finials. Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

That's true Ron I hadn't noticed it until you mentioned it. Seems to be the direction most of the AAW work they publish is going also. Although,sometimes I can't even tell the work has come off a lathe, to me that is going too far unless you are selling your work successfully. Then more power to them.

Hey Ron, I have to agree. I think that all turners that have been turning between 5 and 10 years start to look at embellishing. Of course AAW magazine pushes the embellishing beyond reality, ie, how did they do that....... Thumbs Up

Apparently there is more to life than a simple bowl! I for one am learning a great deal more than I thought I would. That is a happy thought! Never too old to learn something new.... Smiley

There is a German saying that translates something like this.
