"Sometimes the tail wags the dog".......Probably my favorite architectural finial and I thought that some day I'd like to incorporate a derivative into a turning. The finial is turned from African Blackwood and highlighted with copper guilders paste. The lidded box is turned from a single piece of holly from Elisabeth Ross. I beaded the upper section and textured the foot skirt and underside with a rotary tool and used airbrushed acrylics for color. The interior was left natural revealing a rather stark contrast when the lid is pulled off.
204mm x 95mm (8" x 3-3/4"
Thank you for looking!
Oh...I purposely did not mention the name or location of the finial that inspired this.....let the games begin :)
