Priddle Does Kingston

Graeme Priddle came to Kingston for an evening demonstration. He was going to do off center woodbowl turning but when he saw my woodlathe sitting untethered, he reckoned we would be watching the lathe dance out the door, so we decided to go with a smaller demo of creating his signature small boat forms as seen in the photo below.

Some of Graeme Priddle's carved work which he brought as samples for viewing. It must be sculpture if it has a hole in it.
Graeme was a very entertaining demonstrator. He started off by telling about where he got his inspiration. I reckon NZ must be quite inspirational.

Here he is demonstrating woodcarving with his self made woodburner using an underpowered electrical source. Did raise some smoke though.

This shows the woodburner handle.
