Whoever said you can’t trump nature is wrong…you did it. I am amazed at the depth you’ve coaxed out of that very nice turning. This wood looks a whole lot better after you messed with it. Without the aniline dye job (and a couple of other special, neat things!) I bet you’d be still working on this, not posting it. Home Run times ten.

PS would really like an explanation of the detail around the hole in the vessel.

Joe – Hadn’t seen one of your beautiful works for a bit. This one is stunning. what are the dots by the opening? Once again, your color and finish is spectacular…..Even the pictures are great…...what do you use as a background for the photos?

Thanks for the kind remarks. The detail around the opening was carved with a small round burr and then filled with yellow acrylic paint. I use a roll of white paper for the background when photographing.

You came up with a lovely shade of purple.I have been trying to find that color purple to put on my vase for a cousin who is just crazy about purple. I did come up with a purple dye but it was a sickly shade, not vibrant like yours! You made a winner!

Beautiful color just when I think you can’t find another color you come up with a new one. Nice treatment of the opening too.
