Very nice, Ed. I really like the vases as well. One note (from experience): be careful with the lighting. If those are halogen lights, they will very quickly fade the color of the wood (depending on the UV resistance of the finish). I had several pieces almost ruined by an art gallery that didn’t realize how harsh the UV exposure is with Halogen. My understanding is that Xenon lamps are much better.

Best wishes in the show!

Lovely display with all the turnings. I hope the show goes well for you and you become both rich and famous! That piece of spalted wood you have under construction is the true ‘creme de la creme’. How do you plan on finishing it? Congratulations on an excellent display again.
