This is the next in my Hubble Telescope series. The two knots appear to be in orbit. The end grain hollow form measures 9.25 inches by 5 inches and is turned from White European Poplar. It is finished with aniline dyes and lacquer.

All comments, especially critiques, are welcomed and appreciated.

Simply stunning Joe. The combination of grain and colors are fantastic. Very appropriately named.

Thanks for posting it.

Very cool Joe. Love the colors. You can almost see the milky way. It draws you in. Makes you want to touch and rub your hand over it. Are they as smooth as the they look? Good luck again with the show.

I have totally ran out of superlatives. Rest assured, Joe, that a response from me that just says “very nice” means much more than that.

Looks alive, reminds me of the auroa, just shows how nature stores light in what it helps create, all you have to do is remove the covering to expose the life.
