I guess I’m fluffing my own feathers here a bit, but then why have a blog if you can’t do that. 🙂
Recently I started posting shots of my work on the WoW site (Woodturners on the Web). I have been a member of the site for a couple of years now but it took me until now to post because considering the amazing talent that is displayed there, it’s just a little intimidating. Other members comment either favourably or critically and the criticisms are always constructive, so that’s a good thing. I finally decided to jump in because of the exposure and opportunity to gain knowledge and insight into my designs.
Each day there is one piece chosen by a team of seven (one for each day of the week) to be the “cover photo” on the front page of the site. In not much more than a month I have had two “covers”. The first was the collaborative piece with Eric Lofstrom that I posted here earlier. A few days ago I had one of my own picked for the cover: “Caldera”. I received a lot of favourable comment from not only “normal” people like myself, but also from some of the more prominant folks on the site. Some of these are well respected turners internationally, so that makes me feel pretty good.
As always, I encourage your comments and questions, so please refer to the tag line at the bottom of the article to post a comment.
