Haven’t decided on the base treatment yet…will load in jam-chuck and round off the tendon is my inclination at this stage….neighbor wants to purchase as is before it goes to gallery… I think I’ll put it in the gallery with a sold tag on it, but finish the base with signature 1st It was a fireplace log …saw the spalt and worked it. Life can be fun…much better than watching Trump stick his foot down his throat again and listen to talking heads all evening….thanks for looking

Wow. Nice piece! And you’re right, the base isn’t quite right. Needs a little touch up.

PS if anyone is looking for stones to grind up you can buy them on-line or you can go to a home-improvement store and look for aggregates used to make your own cement…. most of those little pebbles are quartzite and shiny and impressive when mashed up… also, a gravel driveway (like our 3/4 mile long sand and gravel road is an amazingly productive source.) Bang away friends… Try purchasing an iron pipe cap as big as you can (I found a 3” cap) at Lowes for $3.00 it’s 1.5 “deep. place stone in here , cover with a rag and bang away.

Very nice. I think I’d add an oblong base where that smaller base of the bowl fits right into

Thanks for the idea Roger, but I finished the base in a traditional fashion… will do more experimentation with bases as I go along. Hope you are well and busy ! don s.
