This was originally posted a couple of month’s ago. I received notification today that this piece was selected by the American Association of Woodturners to be included in their upcoming exhibition “A Walk in the Woods.” It will open June 7th in San Jose, California. I am honored to be 1 of 27 artists selected from around the world.

Jurassic Pod II is created using the lost wood process. Lightweight was the wood I lost from this form. It started as 3 pieces of timber laminated together. I then turned a hollow form vessel. The vessel is broken apart at the glue joints. This piece is the result of laminating the two outer parts back together. The piece is then carved, dyed, and finished. It measures approximately 6.75” x 5” x 3.75”.

All comments and critques are welcomed and appreciated.

-- My favorite piece is my last one, my best piece is my next one.
