Fantastic piece! A bit scary at first when you started to turn. How did you hold this piece, I don’t see your chuck mark? Very interesting and lovely piece. Thanks for showing it!

Very nice Dog. Working around that inclusion must have been a delicate job.
Nice display too.

Very nice piece. I like the proportions and the little base you put under it.

Man! You just keep gettin’ better!

I really like the inclusion, but remind me to never come to your house for soup. ;)
