This is similar to pieces done by the late Liam Flynn. I had he good fortune to tip a few with Liam at last years AAW symposium in Atlanta. I did not know at the time that I was sitting with such greatness. A couple months ago Liam was found dead. He was only 48 years old and a very talented artist.

This piece is figured maple Approx 5 inches tall and 4 at the widest. It is currently in a gallery in Fremont Mi

C and c alway welcome

A wonderful example of his work Ron, Liam was a great artist & this represents his style with the inner rim series.
Top work, ( he was taken too early, I believe late 40’s)
Thanks for sharing

Brian is so right; I am appreciating everything more as I become “middle aged” now.

Hey! I am NOT OLD—I am merely in my extended middle age!

If this is the same Liam from Limerick Ireland he died in his sleep.
Something we all can look forward to not that you will know about it.
It makes me wonder when it will be my turn, so I always finsh stuff before bedtime just in case.

When I get the call to go home I want people to come into the shop and see various projects in the works. As if I expected to come back to the shop anytime.

Ron, this is a beautiful piece to me and it shows a lot of artistic talent and craftsmanship. You must have learned quite a lot from Liam and his work.
