An interesting organic shape. I like the layers of texture and shapes and especially the elongated feet that look like they are reaching out to wiggle their toes!

Nice to see you moving in a bit of a different direction. This form is kind of cool, but for my taste, I think the feet are a little too big / long. I do like the idea of the tripod footing, just think they stick out a bit more than needed. The textured vessel emerging out of the pod is spot on…..... very nice.

For me, I really like this texture on the top part of the vessel. But what catches my eye more than anything else is the face in the first photo. Not only is the face profile evident, but the spalted eye and eyebrow are positioned perfectly.

Pretty cool Joe. Is this turned from a single piece of wood or is it two separate pieces fitted together?
