Charles has such a kind and amiable personality while teaching which allowed us to ask any questions. He had an excellent presentation which showed the steps and why he takes to create a beautiful piece worthy of any collection. Mr. Farrar supports his methods by much experience on the lathe working only green wood. Inappropriate moving and checking?.... no, he turns completely with a very thin wall thickness to allow fast drying and no catastrophic results. Overnight storage is accomplished by covering the vessel with a plastic bag and/or spraying with lacquer to seal properly.
The results of his careful form and design posits the results in sales of the vessels he creates. Currently Mr Farrar works only with hollow forms and scalloped edges.
