August was again a very busy month with the Ventura County Fair 2005 (more photos have been added of booth activities), and the excellent meeting on August 28th featuring our past president Jim Rinde giving a demonstration of use of the boring bar for deep hollowing of vessels. Photos from the meeting and Jim’s presentation are below.
The school mentoring program at Cabrillo Middle School started Sept. 1st and is in full swing right now. If you have time to contribute contact President Al Geller and sign up. The kids are a pleasure to work with and eager learners.
The meeting this month, Sept. 24th features J. Paul Fennell. We can only accommodate 35 people so be sure to reserve your spot by calling or emailing Al Geller. The fee of $25 covers our costs and includes lunch. The following are several links to sites that feature Paul’s work and will give you a short biography and indication of what he will be presenting: del Mano Gallery – Bio -J. Paul Fennell, del Mano Gallery |photos| J. Paul Fennell. J. Paul Fennell is a wood-turner whose interest in creating original objects from the lathe dates back to the early 1970s. His thin-walled hollow forms are turned from woods of unusual colors, figures and grain patterns, mainly from native American species, but sometimes from imported woods as well. The vessel forms are derived from variations of simple but pleasing classical shapes ubiquitous throughout civilization. To enhance the work, experiments are continually made to explore variations in surface texture, bleaching, gilding and carving.
