Trifern – great job with incorporating the open air space into your vessel shape. Voids and burls are not the easiest pieces to turn. The waterlox and briwax finish really makes the piece pop.

I have not commented on many of your last turnings, even though they were all very nice….This one is on another level IMO. Amazing chunk of wood and true artistry in the making of this vessel. Gallery material all the way !

I still don’t know how you turn that without tearing that up. Amazing.

Joe, this is fantastic. Talk about character! I love the grain, the design and the voids. Nice finish too!

I just noticed in pictures 3 & 4 it looks like a face with two eyes and a mouth…very cool :)

Thanks for posting it.

Jose, I know I’ve told you numerous times that all your stuff is awesome, but this one I REALLY like. Envy doesn’t look nice on a person, but unfortunately, that’s what I’m wearing right now.

Joe great work
I just don’t know how a turning like this survives without blowing up when turned.
