Hello folks

I’ve been exploring a simple ovoid or egg form lately and have been finding it quite challenging to get right- this is an oilve ash form I’ve finished recently its 5 1/2” wide by 5 5/8” tall

-- it can't rain all the time!!

I love the way the grain of the wood is displayed! There’s something really cool about that…beauty of nature and whatnot.
