Dawg! I really like that one. When will you be having a show? I’d like to come out to it. If you don’t have one you definitely should.

A wonderful piece of work Roper, the elevated cap & lift make it a standout

great turning. The spalted maple looks great. I can only imagine the skill required to hollow out the vessel giving the shape and small opening. The lid and sweeping lift are striking and a great design element.
