Fantastic turning. You are getting VERY good on you finial designs. The vessel is outstanding as allways.

Keep it up.

WOW! The shape is awesome. The finial is very good but I would like to see the tip smaller.

Nicely executed. The finial is quite exquisite with the delicate shaping. The body is a nice contrast and I like the subtle use of color in the finish. (I’m also an admirer or your bolder works too.) The unfinished photo is a nice referral, as it shows us how you have to decide what to do with the basic wood.

Cool I really like the egg like form and the finial is the crowning element.
