Merry Christmas!


For 2009, Dennis has made a traditional icycle ornament with sea urchin shells and holly.

The urchins are a delicate seashell that has been stabilized and painted with iridescent paints.  The finials are turned in three pieces  too conserve holly, which is a very white, and relatively scarce wood.  The ornaments are 6″ tall, with shells up to 2″ wide.

The urchins are sometimes used upside down by woodturners, but Dennis prefers the Victorian look of the rightside-up shell.

Merry Christmas to All, and to All a long night in the woodshop!
