Day 335: Testing texture
You may recognize these 3 hollow forms from yesterday. Today they were hollowed and then textured.
The piece on the right was an experiment, I intentionally cut some grooves on the inside so that they would open up and show through as voids when the piece was textured. I think there's potential here. The middle piece was turned with the grain at a slight angle. I'll probably do another one with the grain running closer to 45 degrees. The piece on the right has the grain running horizontally and is the most successful of the 3 in my opinion.
