These are two Mobius ribbon turnings I turned after watching an tutioral DVD by Malcolm Tibbetts. The first called Leaves is maple with leaf silhouettes cut out of the center. The second called bubbles is cherry with random size holes cut out of the center. Both take 3 1/2 bowls. The pictures show a front, left side and right side view. Thanks for looking, critiques welcome.

Tom, what fun this is. Making the leap from bowls to sculpture is a wonderful idea. The tutorial certainly wasn’t lost on you. For some reason I like the round holes better, but I am sure the leaves took more time. This a a true exercise in patience and persistence. There is a great sense of floating and twisting in this work. Thanks for taking us along on this step in your creative journey.

Very nice. I like the look of the bubbles more than the leafs although the leafs are quite beautiful.
I don’t think the holes in the stand work, and the bubbles would stand out better on the turnings without them.

Wonderful work Tom and I like your twist on the ribbon design. I have Tibbets segmented turning book which I used to learn segmented turning and I also made his sanding jig which works really well.
