I took this picture of my prototype while it is hanging in the window. I wanted you to see the reversing volute pattern.(it is not is an “expanding” pattern) I have been around turning for decades and do not believe I have ever seen this done before. Hans Weissfolg does circles eccentrically, and is world renowned . This is reversing volutes done NON eccentrically. Hope it boggles your brains..I will attempt to refine this concept and apply it to an end product. Thanks for sharing my journey..I’m tickled pink with myself..hope you are at least intrigued! This has not been turned down or sanded or finished in anyway, so please excuse …

Very cool. It’s quite mesmerizing. Non-eccentric reversed volutes. I’m truly boggled!

Very , very cool looking. It is very impressive to say the least. But I had to save it and lighten it up to see it, the pic is very dark..

wseand: it’s negative space design..the idea is you are to see what is no longer there..the no wood spaces. Where the light comes is designed to be seen just as I posted it..It is not about the wood…This concept befuddles most folks as they are used to it being all about the wood.

I’m not a turner, but I’m with you on the negative space thing!

Your tagline is the best I’ve seen in a long time! So true!
