12 inch tall x3 diam ash vase, carved & dyed. my camera died last week and a friend came by & took as horrible pictures with her camera as I do with mine. !!! I’ve never tried anything like this before, but I’m pretty pleased with the result. Maybe next time I will make a faster pitch spiral . I might also carry the carving up over the top. Thanks for looking.

Another great work of art, Michelle.

Is the chuck going to stay with it as part of the overall effect? :-)

I really like the elongated form as it’s quite elegant and yet modern. Very classic lines yet new and exciting results!
