The Rooster Coffee Pot was created during the summer of 2012. After learning the basics of wood-turning techniques during the previous summer from a student at Rochester Institute of Technology, I used the lathe
to design an object in a contemporary fashion. After one month of brainstorming for concepts, followed by extensive sketching, I began shaping all the components. Measuring 12" by 8", the coffee pot showcases cherry and black walnut hardwoods. Designed to serve hot temperature liquids, the pot contains a deep interior that extends to the neck.
