Pots,  Turning

Two Generations Ago

These two pieces were made by my Grandfather, Don Dann, at Rosebery in Tasmania in the mid to late 1950s. He had a lathe in his shed and apparently had a knack for wood turning. According to my Mum, he also used to cook up his own varnish which used to stink to high heaven. I’m not sure what timers he used, the pot looks like it may be Tasmanian Myrtle, they both most likely came from the west coast of Tasmania though.
