Turbine 4 by OmnivoreArt Turbine 4 by OmnivoreArt
Materials: Old growth Cherry, Pine. Dim: 3 foot radius.

The "turbine" is the result of my obsession with machines and repeating symmetry. It took me about 200 hours and was a completely enjoyable pain in my ass. It has eight coats of polyeurothane sanded down to 2000 grit. I had to make several tools just to make it.

This is a beautiful "radial" turbine engine. I'm guessing that it is at least 6" deep. I love the details in the way the wood is put together for the fans and I'm guessing those are some kind of spark plugs around the rim.

Haven't the slightest clue... I have about 20 ideas and life keeps standing in the way. A gold fish bowl that looks like a fish airship? Just one of many competing ideas. I often flail around until one idea takes control of me.

Looking forward to the next piece - glad to hear there is more great potential in the mix!  
I know how life gets in the way of art; art can be such an all consuming process that a project won't let you compromise for anything else ... and there are a lot of other things in life.

My sister has often said that if you really want to be a full-on artist you must be alone. I agree. The sacrifices one must make are hard to bring anyone else along with.
