"Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt the truth a liar;
But never doubt I love."
Here is a look at a rocker I jsut recently completed. It has been in my head for along time now; and while it is similiar in many ways to my usual rocker, it does have some differences, namely the back posts have a different curve.
On my usual rocker, the Traditional rocker, the back post are steam bent to look like a section of a circle. A large circle, but a circle. Comfort wise it's fine, as the back spindles really support your back and give it it's comfort. But for a long time I wanted visual unity between the spindles and the posts, and I wanted a birds-beak false miter at the top of the posts as seen below. I use a thru dowel that is wedged. Also the turning are double bobbin.
And here she is. I could not be happier. I only got two quick shots before it was off to the gallery, a new gallery Georgetown Pottery in Freeport, Maine, just down from LL Bean.
As an aside, this weekend I hope to be rolling out my new website so I am really excited about that and also hopefully my galleries start to pick up as summer arrives.
