Very nice Joe! I like the way the grain shows up lighter and contrasts with the rest. Almost looks like a photo negative of what one expects to see in wood.

Thanks for posting it.

Beautiful piece! The shape enhances the grain pattern very well. Your color and finish techniques work well too. This reminds me of an ancient Greek pottery.

Very nice Joe, do you have an outlet for selling your turnings? Or is that a MYOB question? You’ve become quite productive and it’s quality art.

Joe, you are really branching out in your turnings. This is nice piece. The finishing routine that you used on this accentuates the grain and gives the vase a wonderful look.

Another fine job.

Mike, I have been selling a few pieces. This piece was actually a commissioned piece.

Thanks for all the kind remarks. I appreciate them all.
