This is really a beautiful piece, Michelle! The copper accent is awesome. It does remind me lava, too. I really like it!

Very nicely done, Michelle! Love the copper accent piece and the pleated design. You did a great job with the shaping of the pleats—any tricks to share?? :-)

You just keep making these lovely turnings, each a new twist on a common theme. They are all wonderful and add my name to the “really like the copper accent” list.
Great piece Michelle.

Wow, very cool!

You are going to town on these! I knew there was potential in this from the beginning, but you really have taken it to the stratosphere.
Cool looking at your project page with them together. What a gallery you are building!
