Another of my signature negative space designs. this one I bleached and then added a contrasting copper center. 10 inches in diameter.

very interesting designs!
I’‘ve watched Your circles- great job!
Are those designs intentional? Or are rather abstract?
For me they are exact representations of magnetic fields and their interactions.
Some of them are shown in very specific way… ;)

hi Lukas..thanks for taking the time to comment.
Yes the designs are VERY intentional. It takes a ton of time to design, then figure out how the heck to accomplish the turning.
Neat that they are like magnetic fields and such. thanks for bringing it to my attention
Enjoy your day…

Very nice again.
It’s a good thing these are mounted as stationary objects (they are, aren’t they) because one would be cross eyed very quickly if they were rotating.

I REALLY LOVE this piece! I think it’s one of your most appealing, as I like the modern and geometric touch to it with the contrast of the organic texture and colors of the center. Excellent work!

Really nice piece. I have a feeling that the same amount if not more time was involved with the design than the construction. Very well done. Very appealing!!

Yep, Michael..figuring a design, then figuring HOW to make it, does take a ton of time. I’ve thought up many designs, and have yet to figure out How to make them!
Thanks all for taking the time to comment. it is always appreciated

Again, beautifully as usual.

In the words of Captain Kirk of the Enterprise, “space, the final frontier” and you have developed a good relationship with space.

I definitely agree with oldnovice, you have definitely developed a good relationship with negative space designs
and transforming those designs into wood. As soon as I get finished helping my friend with his remodel, I will
be back out playing with my lathe and try to copy your work. Do not think I will accomplish it, but it will be
fun trying. Thank you for sharing.
