I love the work and the turnings are awesome as usual. However, they all seem to have the same shape. The only real difference I can see is the grain and finish. Do you turn other vessels as well? If so, I would like to see more. I wish I had a lathe I would love to learn how to make things round, straight lines are starting to get boring

Another beaut Joe. Man i love how it is deep green on the top and then blended as you move down. This is a different approach, no?

This emerald color is new for you and is welcome. The deep jewel tone is enhanced by the interesting wood grain. The yin and yang apparent in this piece adds yet another dimension. In nature, there is always duality and you tapped into that. The shape is perfection. It took a lot of commitment on your part to work these hollow forms until they have come to this point. Again, the sign of a real master.
