Really amazing how each piece is so stand alone gorgeous, yet one of many. Getting back to not knowing my favorite. This is super.

Okay, this one is my “current” favorite! Wonderful shape and fabulous grain with great color! You sure make it look easy! You’ve got the feel for turning.

Joe this is awesome. I like the way the grain lines contrast with the dye. Really cool. I like the shape too.

Thanks for posting it.
