A floral inspired pod form.
Turned, a little sanding/carving on this one.
This one is Cherry and is ~ 3 3/4 h x 3.5 w.
Wipe on poly, cut back - buffed / waxed.
Some really nice comments from the recipient:
"I've been fondling the pod most of the evening and looking at it in different light, etc. It's rather an amazing piece of art. It fits exactly in both my hands, for instance...heels of hands on one side and fingers just touching on the other and it's very warm to the touch. The swirling grain on the side is iridescent and absolutely gorgeous when it's moved around close to a light source. The depth of pattern and color are rather amazing. It gives a lot of bang for such a small piece.
Can you guess that I love it and can't resist caressing it
often? I've always admired your art pieces, but they really need to be touched to be completely appreciated, don't they?
The smoothness just has to be experienced."
