Interesting texture. It looks like an orange or maybe coral. You could also polish the top surface to have a rough gouge vs. smooth top layer of skin. How about making more randomly joined grooves, like worm holes? Looks like fun!

How’d you get the texture? Gouge?

Beautiful piece.

Very unique. The holes are bigger than the previous and not filled with color.

Both great designs.

Very nice, I love the texture. How many hours did it take you to do this?

Very cool Joe, just beautiful, full of mystery and the close up is mind bending, looks like the surface of a planet.

I don’t think that I have ever seen anything like that in my life; actually I think that it is quite unusual and is quite original. However, I think that it must have taken a lot of skill to make. I mean, I’m not quite sure how you did the texture. You people who are hooked on making these hollow vessels out of wood are actually quite an amazing lot. One minute I think that I have seen it all and the next minute I think a whole new frontier has opened up.

I like it, but to be honest, find the texture a little overwhelming for my taste.

Beautiful work and nice form.

Very nice. How did you get that texture, and how long did it take you.
