Ray Key workshop
I just spent a week with RAy Key at the Appalachian Center for craft. What a fun time. I got to turn a lot. He's a great guy and I would urge you to take a workshop from him if you ever get the chance. 40 years as a production turner teaches you a lot. He's also been involved with the upper echelons of turning for all of these years so he has a million stories to tell.
I'll try to post a few photos of some of the pieces I did late in the week. I turned a shallow bowl, a deeper bowl,2 boxes, a thin walled open bowl, a deep open mouth hollow vessel and a 2 smaller opening hollow vessels. I still have some minor finishing to do and I plan to do some other detail work on the outside of a couple of pieces.
