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!

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.
