Is it the first ever thru spiral hollowform from a board? I believe it just might be. i have never seen one! I apologize for the picture. My camera died and this is the only picture I have. Squint & turn upside down & it’s not too bad!! Shedua about 8 inches diameter.

Lovely job Michelle, this is a unique piece & you certainly have a lot of scope to develope with this direction.
Not sure what you mean with a “board”, do you mean a series of flat boards laminated horizontally then turned?, if so I am having difficulty seeing any joints.
Regardless, it is a fabulous piece, pity the camera died, some more shots of the top etc would be great. :: ))

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this is another of your many designs that just won’t hold water!

Keep it up! Great work!

I’ve missed commenting on a couple of your recent projects Michelle.
Just so you know, I’m totally impressed as always. I particularly like this recent pierced series.

This would be a tease of a cookie jar! Think of all the drool marks left behind.

A real beauty of a turning. Incredible and elegant!
