|KAPOW 2021 Week 45||Woodturning||November 14, 2021|
|KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week|
For the KAPOW, I rescued a past failed wood turning project and made it into a abstract Christmas tree.
Last spring I was practicising woodturning some Banksia pods (tree seed pods from Australia—see photograph below). I had a shape I liked going then the whole end of the pod ripped off and left a jagged broken end. This week I encased the remaining part of the pod in epoxy resin and turned it into this tree shape. I used several different colors of epoxy resin to fill the holes from the seed. I drilled out the center and wired up with a LED bulb and a rechargeable battery—it lights up and resembles a Christmas tree with ornaments.
Remember, there is no definition of art…..
