tried out some chubby handled boards, curly maple

I'm not a potter but I wanted to contribute to my pal @helen_levi's amazing event #pottersinprotest. This time around she's hosting an ice cream social in New York. Potters will be donating bowls and on September 9th, you can buy one filled with ice cream (you keep the bowl!) and all proceeds will go to the Center for Constitutional Rights. If you're a potter who wants to donate a bowl, please email Helen!
If you read this far, I'm auctioning off this walnut Sundae bowl right now and donating 100% to the same cause, the Center for Constitutional Rights. I don't know how to do an auction, so uh, I guess just bid in the comments? ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ Bidding starts at $100. Must be paid through PayPal after auction ends Sunday 7/23/17.

Bowl is hand carved, 6.5" across by 3" tall.
Let's support equal rights for everyone!

this spalted maple looks soooo nice bleached and sealed ๐Ÿ•ธ


(Update: sold) ok hi, I'm selling this piece from a few years ago. It was one of the last pieces I ever made like this, second to last maybe? I did work like this for years before moving on, but for some reason couldn't let this one go when I still lived in Brooklyn. A year after moving, it doesn't fit me anymore, and I feel happy thinking it might find a new home. It's nearly 4' tall. Link in profile. ~thanks!~


walnut + horsehair, 2.3 lbs 7"x 9"

walnut โ‹ƒ

more very big walnut brushes. these are such a good use of odd scraps because grain direction doesn't really matter for once

me and my long thumb are always falling in love with rocks. but a two-mile hike back up a mountain to the car meant it was a short romance

this cutie flew into the studio and was sitting on the cedar candelabra when we noticed him!! man oh man I wish I had gotten a photo of THAT

packing up orders - someone bought these two together and I rather love the combo ๐Ÿ‘ฏ they have a vision!
