This is the first ever of hollowform of this kind, I have ever made. I don’t think it shall be my last. It is made from maple & I wanted some great color for it. it’s a mix of red & copper. I call the color, Rose Copper. It is quite a standout and looks terrific on my braggin’ shelves!! :-) A little shy of 8 inches in diam.

Unbelievably beautiful! This is definitely my favorite piece of yours! The contours on the edges give it a ‘soft’ and ‘puffy’ effect. Stunning, Michelle!

That’s a really nice piece of work. I’ve been interested in trying some coloring in my turnings but don’t know where to start. What kind of dye do you use?

Very delicate but with a bold colour. A good combination, Michelle.

I think Sheila’s description is good too. Funny how you have made maple seem soft and puffy. Quite the trick !

This is an interesting piece Michelle, has it been turned in 2 halves & joined?, hard to realy tell from the single shot, there is a few miles left in this design element.
Lovely imaginative work as we have come to expect :: ))

If I made it, I’d brag about it too! Besides, it is quite okay to toot our own horn here on LJ! I love it ! ! !
