Default Greetings from Southern Michigan

Been lurking for quite awhile and making a few pens here and there. Turned my first bowl and one pen at a friend's place this summer and was rebitten by the bug. Getting started casting, going to get into stabilizing and turning, turning, turning!

The front two are from my second batch of castings, still working on getting good distribution of color. These were poured in vertical PVC pipe molds using spray silicone as a release agent.

Welcome from Colorado. Nice pens, a suggestion would be to paint the tubes before inserting in the blank, helps hide the tube.
