this reminds me of a frosty window at night, with branches slowly moving in a very slight breeze. A little something different..a thru spiral form with acrylics. I get a great feeling of calm when i look at this..hope you do too.

Wow, Michelle! This is my absolute favorite of your pieces to date! Calm, flowing and beautiful! I actually ‘gasped’ when I saw it. You constantly amaze me with your scope and vision. Just outstanding!

A feeling of calm is given by this little masterpiece in its finished form, but looking at that top surface of thebowl, with those unsupported pieces, would have given me a very quiet case of tension while making it,almost afraid to breathe because of my tendency to break fragile items. Thank you for sharing.

That is the most impressive turning that I’ve seen in a long time. I assume that it is wood but it almost looks like glass. very nice! Can you share the finishing process?Bibb

Wow! I can feel the coldness when I looked at it! The coldness that keeps you calm. Such a beauty!
