1 Spalted pecan vessel 8” x 14”
2 Walnut farm stead 18” x 26”
3. Photo of farmstead inspiration for #2
4. Butterfly 18” x 24” book matched Camphorwood crotch sections. had to scan original JPG & copy to get small enough image to post with size restrictions. Color is washed out because of this technique but you get the idea
5. This is a real mind bender. yes this is a 3 legged vessel, lathe turned. It was sold recently. I am working with the purchaser to get the opportunity to re-photograph the piece from different angles so it will be equally difficult to comprehend how it was done but easier to look at ? Oh and it is 11” tall 6”deep and 11” wide and turned out of natural edge Chinaberry.

6. Cherry vessel 12.5” x 10”

The spalted vessel is a beauty. I also like the grain of the wood on the butterfly.
