Beautifully done! Nice shape on the lip. I’m still working on clearing a shelf for a collection!

Thanks for all the feedback. I appreciate them all.

grizzman, I do sell my work through galleries, art festivals, farmers market and direct. You can check out my blogs on hollow forms and dyeing techniques. I have a list of the galleries on my profile page. I have done different shapes but recently have been intrigued with the hollow form. They have been selling fairly well, averaging a couple a week.

I don’t know exactly what it is, but you’ve hit upon it.
Your hollow forms are some of the most mesmerizing work I’ve observed.
It’s always a pleasure to see what you’re going to post next.
