I’m trying hard to keep this short and to the point, and without too long and arduous a journey through my head.
The Victim – Jacaranda
The Montage, showing various stages of trying to figure out what it is.
The outside of this Thing got finished, unfinished, and refinished at least four times, before I went to the inside. The bottom-right photo is where you get a better look at the inside than you got up yonder, in the bright sunshine.
And this is, I think the best representation of what it really looks like, just before I cut it free.
I took about a hundred and fifty photos along the way.
It stands about 7” tall, and the bowl of it is about 3/16” thick. The two cracks at the lip presented themselves shortly after I began the hollowing, when the piece experienced an uncommanded departure from control and hit the floor. I fixed them with CA. They were fine until very late in the game, when the CA failed and left one of them loose. Having finished this Thing so many times, and having it down to as thin as it got, I opted to just leave the crack.
Thank you. And, I apologize.
