Having a blast playing with color and texture. This hollow form vessel is turned from end grain maple. It measures approximately 7 inches tall by 6 inches wide. It is finished with various acrylics.

All comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

Joe, this is certainly an interesting turning. It almost looks like a piece of stone or pottery rather than wood.

You are unbelievable. I have a hard enough time just turning one out natural never mind with any texture or color. You certainly have a knack for these creations and this is another fine piece.

Joe: Another truly beautiful piece. It looks like a mix of paints that wont’ mix like one is water and the other oil. As if they are repelling each other.

Very nice.

This is an extraordinary shape and reminds me of the finest Chinese vases. Be interesting to link up with a mathematician and do the calculus of this shape. Do you do ceramics, too?

Keep up the inspirational work.
