After the AAW symposium in St. Paul I came home with a lot of ideas for ways to display turning on different bases. This base is a piece of Linden I got here on the front range and the vessel is a piece of Walnut. 18” tall, the vessel is 6” x 6”. All comments and questions welcome. Thanks for looking.

That’s a good name for it, Roper! I love the stand. It really gives a ‘presence’ to a 6” vessel. Nicely done.

Lovely presentation Roper, very well done indeed, from the title does the stand represents the cracked earth leading up to the lava spill over ????

Dr. Roper your talent as an artist has exploded. This is a marvelous combo. What a great way to get small pieces up into people’s line of sight. This is sure to pull even more people into your booth.

Thanks for all the great feedback guys and gals.@Peteg, yes I was inspired by the way a volcano will rip open a mountain so that is why I opened the base up and the curves are supposed to be the rivers of lava.
