Wow! That’s really unique! Hubby thinks it looks like a volcano; I think maybe a unusual gourd or flower bulb.

I love the shape with the white on top. the texturing, look like wire brush is good . I feel if it were mine I ‘d deepen the grooves for more shadows and take the line out it would enhance the depth, sand the white only and I maybe wrong but wire brush with the grain not against it . It’s still a great piece. It amazes me the hollow forms with small openings takes limited time to cut the inside out but to get the shavings out takes 80% of the time. Keep turning and go to the studio and make something.

If you do not sell at a gallery at now, you should go and show what you do.I have just went through all the projects you made here, and you have made such a progress, and it is so fine to see how you more and more get the control over the wood so you can go where you want with it.You are now able to bring sencitivity into the work, not ‘just’ turning, shaping, carving and texture this is relly at a level only few will ever reach.Best of my thoughts,MaFe

You may have named this ‘BO’ – but it certainly DOES NOT stink! I admire your mastery of the hollow form – your work inspires me to give it a go. Always a pleasure to see your work posted here.

That is really nice.
I like all the detail you did after it was turned.
Very creative, too

Joe, I like it. I’m thinking about hollowing out that form through that relatively small opening and then carving and texturing it too. I’ve found oak harder to turn too. Keep them coming.
