Nice vessel…. and I like the ant idea. I had saved the attached graphic in my files hoping one day to use it in having the ants march around the spoon bowl.

The other thing is…. I always thought that if I got a tattoo… it would be of an ant on my calf and folks would probably be fooled into thinking it was ‘real’.

I was always ‘skeered’ to turn the deep hollow forms….. to much concentration.

(not sure why the ant graphic is showing up in ‘negative’. in my file it is black ants with white background)

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

Pesky little ants they get into everything, be especially wary of Spoonies white variety!!

Great way to decorate a plain surface, The piece itself has a nice full form to it Mike plus I like the rise to the neck,
Well done & a great piece to enter WOW with :)

Really nice shape. The ants crawling in makes me want to pick it up and look inside to see what they’re after.

Beautiful peice Kaybee took the words right out of my mouth the path of the ants make you want to lool inside kind of corky but you should find an ant figure and place him inside some how and give the looker a treat when they peek inside
Thanks for sharing
