Turning Wheels and Studio Tour Sunday

 I was inspired this week to carve a quick tile.  I guess its more of a plate than a tile.  Its slightly domed.  Whatever it is, it was fun to carve.  I miss carving so much.  It really only took me less than an hour, start to finish. I need to take more time to do such things, just for the hell of it.
Here's whats turning up in the studios of some of my beady friends this week
