In 2016 Gary Lowe, an English wood-turner, decided to experiment with Jo Sonja’s iridescent paint when decorating a platter. Using a small compressor to blow the paint across the surface instead of using a brush, he created cloud like shapes which he likened to Cosmic Clouds.
Hugh Mill and his fellow wood-turners have challenged themselves to embellish an extensive group of pieces using and experimenting with the ‘Cosmic Cloud’ concept; resulting in the exhibition they’ve titled Celestial Wood.
