A fantastic looking vessel. And a unique way of attaching the supports.

Thanks for the kind words everyone… This piece of Carob Burr sat around my studio for a few years waiting for the right project. It originally started out as a bowl blank, but when I purchased it there was a rather large split down the middle of the blank. I opted to cut the blank in half and turn two hollow forms out of it, instead of trying to inlay the negative space in the split.

This is the first completed piece of the set… The second piece is not as well figured, so it will no doubt require some adjunctive treatments to make up for the lack of figure. Thanks again for all of the comments. Take care and best wishes to all of you!

P.S. I’ve been up to my ears in alligators in the studio for the last few months, so I have not been able to check in or post much lately. Free time is as rare as hens teeth these days…
