Interesting. Looks nice. Is it a bowl or flat?

Wow! Beautiful turning. How do you do do all those grooves though?

Rance: under the photo it says .363 inches thick. It is an optical illusion that it appears deep.

I think this is my favorite of your work. This does look like a very unforgiving pattern. Must have taken a lot of time. Very nice!

Beaiutifully executed! I can see how two snails would be doing a mating dance! The pattern also reminds me of the seed pattern of a sunflower.

It’s never hard to spot your pieces when they come up Michael, another beauty. Smooth, fair curves are always much harder than any other line and volutes are easy to get looking wrong. Yours are great. Awesome Art.

This is a beaut, Michelle. Very nicely done! The planned geometry is perfect, as any tiny wobble would be instantly noticeable. Good work!
