        i'll be honest... I've never been much of a fan of pyro (prepares to be burned... literally)

        But they are very nice indeed... hope to see more!

            Better explain finials Steve. Most won't know what they are LOL

              Thanks for the comments guys. Susan-the finials are the black things on top, they have been a bit of a learning curve for me. Had to learn to be not so heavy handed on the lathe as they are quite delicate to do especially spinning at nearly 2000rpm ;-)
              Spoons - no problemo pyro is not everyones cup of tea. I`m kinda developing pyro as a means of decorating/texturing my wood turnings.
              Glad you all like them
              Cheers

                Very nice - lovely shapes & patterns. Very neat work!! They are really unusual.

                    Must admit this is my favourite so far Steve..then being a celt I would say that wouldn't I. Getting the knot the right size to fit like that is very impressive. Simon has competition I think

                      Oh okay, I get it - I thought the entire things were finials, like on top of armoirs or bannisters. So, the deicate part is the finial. So okay, I have to ask - what is the rest of it, that the finial is on? Sorry to be so dense...what are they? Whatever they are, they are still beautiful, IMO! =)

                        They're very nice indeed! I haven't the patience for this bold style myself, but it's very effective. An the turning looks lovely too - nice elegant shapes.

                          It's not a requirement - you don't HAVE to like pyro work! But there are a lot of different styles of burning out there...

                            Hi Susan
                            Sorry for delay replying, the finial (black thingy) is attached to a small Walnut lid which fits onto what we woodturners call a hollow form (why I don`t know - make that a vase;-)) so the main bit with the pyro on is simply a hollowed out and shaped on the lathe piece of (in this case) Sycamore hope that makes sense ;-)
                            Regards
                            Steve

                              I love the shape and decoration of the flatter piece in the first photo, but they are all really good
