not only am I completely fascinated by your work, I spend an enormous time staring at it trying to grasp how it’s done.

Great job, keep it up & I’ll keep staring!

I’m not familiar with the lost wood process but if this is what is involved in using it I hope to see much more of it.
Beautiful work.

I looked at – more like admired – it from all angles. I saw four or five hearts stacked together. Am I even close? It just kept whispering to me, “Hold me” – .. . . been high on saw dust too long ! !

I can’t visualize the original piece before the lost wood is wood lost. Beautiful and mysterious.

This is the center 1/3 of the hollow form that was “lost.”
