Turning a Christmas Angel Ornament
By John Tarpley

For: Intermediate Turners


I think many turners enjoy making Christmas ornaments. I try to make a different one each year that I give to friends and family. I also donate ornaments to charities. In 2015 I wanted to make an angel ornament. My inspiration was the line by Zuzu in It’s A Wonderful Life. She said, “Teacher says, ‘Every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings.’”
