Another great project Joe, it would appear that the acrylic is built up on the surface. If so how did you do it? You are certainly cutting edge…

Thanks for sharing

Thanks Chuck. Actually the acrylic is used as layers of glaze. The opening was carved and then textured using an Automach reciprocating carver and a Foredom rotary carver.

Nice vessel. To a West Coaster, it looks like a purple starfish on the top – cool !
