Another in the “tilt” series (I need to get oput of this theme) a hollow form from a piece of Ancient Kauri on a corian peg held with rose head copper nails with additional Kauri shoulder supports. Stands about 190mm h, the vessel is about 60 wide.
Any comments / suggestions appreciated, thanks for the look

(Sorry about the photo size they were scaled down for another site & I never kept the origonals)

I like this one also, maybe a little more than the last one you posted. This series always reminds me of sailing ships.
I like the mixed materials.
Little sad that the pictures are smaller but at least we have those. Thanks for sharing them.

Sweet Pete!!
You have a great imagination and such a touch with the lathe.
Too bad you’re so far away, I could use some lessons.

yes i agree with paul , sweet, i love the form and the details of how its displayed, from the color of the stand to the beautiful wood you used, this is museum looking work…the only bit of a suggestion is that i wonder how it would look if you had a slight walnut lip on the opening..i think it would really draw the eye to start at the top and work down…just a suggestion, but this is spot on beautiful…..
