Have not posted in a while,but I always get on LJ and see what’s going on.Here is a couple new carved vessels or bowls completed lately.These are chainsaw carved and then finished up with different grinders and a lot of sanding.The first two are from a New Mexico Choke Cherry tree (note the walnut bow tie inlayed in the crack)
The third Picture is Mesquite with Turquoise and Red Corral.
The last pictur is Siberian Elm with Turquoise.
Thanks for looking.
Scott

Knew I hadn’t seen any new bowls from NM lately. As always, they are fantastic. I haven’t done any carving in a while. Look forward to getting back to it, even though my bowls never even approach to measuring up to ours. Great job and Happy New Year, or as the say out there, Feliz Año Nuevo.

These are awesome Scott! Very organic in their form…fungi or sea weed. Great grain and color.

All the above Scott. It’s not easy to make truly original things these days, but I think you have certainly succeeded with these beautiful pieces.
