Two swap vessels

A few days ago I was looking thru my stash of swap items form fellow LJ’ers and was struck (again) with the crotch vessel. Looking further I found the little bowl in the third picture and discovered it was from the same person, Don Schneider (porchfish) and I decided to call him and offer thanks for his inspiration.
If you look at the third picture there is a red line running vertically and a darker line running horizontally – both are resin. After looking closer and realizing that if he could put resin in a bowl then so could I and I did. You all know where that went – if you don’t know, look thru my projects page.

NOW

It’s with a sad heart that I post pictures of these two bowls. Both vessels were at the hand of a very talented turner and teacher named Don Schneider of Havana Florida aka Porchfish. In my quest to find his number and talk to Don I was informed he passed away last July 16. His wife Mary told me that had been ill for some time and in May he was told he had but weeks to live.
I’m not only sad of his passing but more so that I didn’t take the time to give credit where credit is due before it was too late.
So guy’s if there’s something that needs to be said, say it before the opportunity dissapears

RIP Don

A thought for any day you wake up.

Sorry to hear of your friends passing Dick. I’ve hung out with a group older than myself for most of my adult life, and I too have missed an opportunity to reconnect to find what you did. I always feel worse than if I knew, and just lost a friend.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Well Dick that’s not for good reading, however we are all going to end up there.

I will have to buddy Don and hope if they ever fix the “in memoriam” he will get posted there as a sing of respect.

-- Regards Rob

Sorry to hear about your friend Dick. That are some awesome vessels. Hopefully he sees that you are on to his work from sharing his ideas.
