LABOURING JOY

Everyday I enjoy goining to my workshop for woodturning.

Making smal objects, making large objects, parts and experiments.

I never boring!

BARBER

I recently came across anorher old craft: the barber!

The proffesion intriguid me and I started to delve into the histoy.

I became across wondrous statements that stimulated my inspiration.

EXPERIMENTING

Again seated behind my lathe I experimented with form, lemght and applications,

I came to a design that is appreciated by many people.

NEW POLE IN OLD COAT

I then went to work to give the pole an old look

Uses special painting, patina and polishing the objects.

I completed a gilding training course beforel started gilding the bulbs of the post.

Techniques that demand a lot of skill.

HOW AM I GOING TO FIX THE POLE ON THE WALL

This really gave me a figuring out how the suspension could be realized.

To find out the best way, I cut, sawed and welded metal.

WEATHER INFLUENCES

Then in my opinion the pole had to defy all kind of weather.

I started to work with durable enemels and painted the pole in a special coating.

And than I came tot he conclusion that my barberpoles may see the light!
