Pink wisps fire
My heart sunk when I removed the egg blank from the pressure pot to discover the burl wood had moved while it was curing. I decided to turn it anyway to get more used to my lathe.
As the corners came off I found the burl wood in the egg looked better for being further into the egg itself.
Lots of sanding and polishing revealed a beautiful egg from an ugly duckling!
I love having this egg on an orange/yellow colour as it reminds me of fire. It’s now one of my favourites to the point I want to keep it, but I’ll be good and sell it to someone who will love it as much as I do.
The base is made from Sapele wood.
The sizes are approx. 20cm high and 10 cm diameter.
This egg is the perfect size for a bedside night light.
The lamp connects to your WiFi and its colour, brightness and effects are controlled by a mobile phone app (Android and iPhone). The app's colour wheel enables any colour to be selected from the palette.
