The Skies the Limit
In 1999 a fantastic discovery was made in Germany that astounded archeologists. On the top of a mountain, at one of a thousand burial sites in the area, an astronomical clock was found that has since been proved to be 3600 years old. Made of bronze and gold, it is the world's oldest depiction of the cosmic phenomena.
Anthony Elson, a silversmith of some renown, recently asked one of our members, Peter Castle, to collaborate in the production of a replica disc with a surround which represents the rings of Saturn.The disc, 18" in diameter, has been made in solid silver with gold embellishments and the surround is in acrylic, ringed on the front and polished to the rear. Now complete, the disc will in due course be on permanent display at an exhibition.
One of our members, Peter Castle, recently received an unexpected accolade.
The Association of Woodturners of Great Britain hold an International Seminar biennually at Loughborough University.
