Comments are now closed! Mimi, I'm using my mom's comment as your second entry! I'll post the winner later tonight or tomorrow morning!
Or maybe it's just me who is excited.
Remember my telling you about our good friend Mike. Well he has his own website up now. Thanks in large part to my dad. Many (but not all) of Mike's beautiful work is posted at shekinahwoodturning. com. Mike's work ranges from beautifully practical to artfully exquisite. Really, you should go take a look. :)
A few months ago, Doug and I headed out his way to take some pictures, purchase a piece for a give away, and Doug worked on a piece. Mike is teaching Doug the art of lathe turning. I sat on the porch with Lynn (his wife) and watched the kids playing in the yard and climbing around in the garage while Daddy worked.
Many of Mike's pieces sit in the garage waiting to be tagged, priced, and put on the website.
I love how this one sits finished on an unfinished block of wood that is waiting to be turned.
Mike gave me a piece for to give away, but I fell in love with it. So, I'm going to have to get back out there and compensate him for it. Here's the give away: it is a beautiful vase he made with some wonderful character to it. (It stand about 6 inches tall and is made from maple.)
Want to know how to win?
I thought so. :)Leave a comment for each of the following you do. I'll do the random number thing. This is open for one week.
Leave a comment for one entry.
Check out his website and look for your favorite piece. Tell me which it is!
Blog about it and leave a link to his website -mine is optional!
Send a twitter or a tweet or whatever you call it with his website included!
This is not a promo for me or my blog so you don't need to link back here. Mike has put many hours into making wonderful vases, bowls, and art. I would love to see him get a little exposure for his work. Maybe even sell a few pieces. :) I hope you have fun looking and please, spread the word. Happy shopping!
