This hollow form vessel is turned from end grain, fiddle back maple. The triangular opening was carved by hand. It is finished with aniline dyes and wipe-on poly. It measures approximately 6 inches tall by 5 inches wide.

All comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

I don’t know if the perfect foam exsists…but you are darn close. Just beautiful. And of course, your finish with dye and poly are always just great . The triangle is something new for you…..nice touch; I like it a lot.

Nice one….............

Another gorgeous piece. The carved opening really adds a nice touch. I’ve tried your dying technique on a couple of bowls but far from your results.

Tri is all about the next lovely layer of eye candy. The wood, form and color are, as always, fabulous. But…now there is something more to contemplate. A little something more to tease the eye and please the mind. Mythology surrounds this one. Beautifully done. I can’t wait to see where you take it next.

Another wonderful piece. I don’t know what I like best, the vessel or the finish that shows off the character of the wood so well.
