Ron, this vessel is so outstanding. It’s a wonderful piece of artwork and so beautifully done. I love it.

I think it’s awesome. Well done.

Love the vase, but not fond of your name for it – by definition a “weed” is an unwanted, unattractive, or aggressively invasive plant. None of those terms apply here. Also those leaves look more like Gingko tree or Maidenhair Fern, both beautiful graceful plants. Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely stunning Ron, as usual.
Couldn’t help but smile at the ladies.

Great result.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I am so disappointed that you all did not see the ladies hips on the front of the vase. They are the same as what is on the bottom . I thought the bottom would give you a hint

I’m making a 2nd comment to satisfy your concerns Ron. I immediately came back to your project and Low and behold there she was smack front and center and with full exposure! How We all missed that we will never know!
Again beautiful in ever sense of the word!
