This is a small Rimu Hollow vessel suspended onto a corian arc & held with turned Aluminium supports.
I have made 2 bases & can’t make up my mind as to which (or none) to use.
It stands about 190mm O/all the vessel is 125 high x 80 wide.
Would appreciate your thoughts & comment

Very nice Pete. I do like the way you present your hollow turnings.
Your turnings are always top notch.

I have looked at both of the bases and I like the base in the top photos better. It is a beautiful piece of artwork.

I fully agree with Degoos, work of Pete’s art.
But, just to make you smile, the Tilt B has reminded me with ready mix concrete truck.

a definite gem of artistic form with wood & metal/aluminum mix. very very kool. I personally like the dark base better, but, they both look very awesome!

I love these suspended vessels of yours. And I vote for the second base you’ve shown there. It’s more Sleek, and leads the eye in the direction of the upper curve.

That is just lovely Pete. I can’t make up my mind on the base…... like them both.
What strikes me the most is the balance. It looks so natural and so I don’t know just right I guess.

Wow Pete. That is just beautiful.
The corian is so cool. And the posts. And the turning too.

I would go with either of the bases, but might tend toward #2.

I have to say that I think the first base fits more. Beautiful piece. I hope that one day my turnings turn out that well
