Carved and painted maple hollow form measuring approximately 5.5 inches by 5.5 inches. All comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

We will be starting the hollow form class soon. I want those who do not have hollowing tools yet a chance to order them. I’ll start with wood selection later this week.

Wow! This is a beauty! I love the organic curves. I think you should name this one “Jacqueline”.

This one stands out from a long line of stunning projects you have created.
I don’t turn or carve, but I can sure appreciate true artistry.
