Joy and John Moss from Clarksville, GA demonstrated a wide variety of surface embellishment techniques at the Chattahoochee Woodturners March meeting.  Several members also took place in an all day workshop on surface embellishment given by Joy and John.  John demonstrated turning techniques to create a small platter with a 1/16th inch rim thickness.  These thiner rims are much easier to use for piercing.  Thicker rims may be used which might make the platter more durable, but piercing a thicker rim will take much more time.

In addition to piercing using a PowerCrafter (an air-powered 500,000 RPM hand-piece similar to a dental drill) Joy demonstrated and discussed many other techniques including woodburning, texturing, and a wide variety of painting techniques.  Learning techniques and having experience using the tools is one thing.  Having a creative talent involves experimenting and taking the time to examine lots of work from other creative people.  Joy's creativity was most evident in the example pieces she had on display.
