This is my latest negative space design. To say it was a challenge & monstrously hard to do, would be an understatement. I confused myself constantly!!! The design has volute change of direction on 2 levels. Sapele & copper about 10 inches in diameter.
Hope ya’ll enjoy it and that your eyeballs stay firmly in their sockets!

Another beauty.
You are one of the people here whose distinctive style shouts your name at first glance when we see a new project posting. ....... and such an interesting, elegant style it is !

Your projects seem to be spiraling out of control. I think some more pictures from other angles would be nice …to make me feel a little more inadequate.

Nope my eyeballs POPPED! Wow again! And I echo Stephen’s sentiments about seeing it from other angles. It’s beautiful just to gaze at.
