Today I received this unexpected package in the mail from LJ Peteg in New Zealand. Inside was a miniature vase and a miniature cone shaped hollow vessel. The vase is the gift which is a twin to one that Pete made for a challenge on another site. Thank you very much, Pete. It is just gorgeous. I really like the detail you put around the rim.
These pieces were made from NZ native Matai wood which is now a protected species. Along with the pieces was a 2×2x8 block of Matai from which the two were made.
The challenge is to create a piece from the Matai to either support or suspend the hollow vessel. I’m not good at little things like that but I accept the challenge!!
Thanks again, Mate
