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 the
bowl, 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 really nice…! I love the flowing cirve around the perimeter and the finish is 1st class also…

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?

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