I keep thinking each of your post is the best, but some how you’ve topped your last turning once again.
Amazingly beautiful.
Great work Joe.

It really looks like a clear glass vessel with a ring pattern on it, with a green silk scarf dropped inside of it. Amazing how those curls and ribbons appear to be deep inside the surface.

Fantastic job on this turning. Your use of dies and sanding to bring out the best in them is just outstanding.

Allways amazed to see how each one is more beautifull then the last.

how come more people dont do turnings using the end grain direction like you do? is it harder to turn that way? ive noticed most of your turnings are very similar in size and shape, the differences simply being the grain and finishing, yet everyone always comments on how great your turnings are (which i totally agree) im just curious
