Pete needs no introduction. He is well known and respected for his calm, entertaining demonstration style. As club secretary, Pete involves himself in everything to do with the club. As a turner, he has shown consistent flair in producing all forms of turned items.However, it is perhaps in the field of hollow forms where Pete has demonstrated a real eye for design, form and elegant lines.This evening, Pete took us through colouring and texturing of a wide rimmed bowl. The final appearance of the rim of the bowl was very convincingly transformed into a metallic, weathered bronze or copper finish. He also brought along some other examples of his work using this hammered, metallic effect.As usual, Pete took us through the processes with humour and a deep knowledge of his craft, entertaining and informing as he went causing a number of the audience to reach for their notebooks.
