Re: 3-Legged Bowl

I really like this Wes! Contrast, ability to see the leg and button come together somewhat industrial like. Soft curve on bowl just right!!

Re: Grape Juice Container

Beautiful goblet Chuck, both in shape and the embellishment. Proportions are spot on to my eye. Goblets seem to very easily take on either a 'too tippy' proportion especially when drawing out the stem as thin as one can, or 'too stumpy...this is a size one would actually like to use paired with some...

Re: Amphora Verde

Sweet! A big congrats on the POP acceptance. This adds a cool organic spin to the shape, and I like the flow of the base. Outstanding work, and recognizable as yours among any grouping. 2thumbsup

Re: I haven't given up..... yet.

Curt, love seeing this variation with a shape we recognize from you. Only thing I would like to have seen is the herringbone pattern at the top, but it's not a detraction. Doing better than me. I started a small one about two years ago and got cross-eyed so I put it away. Very nice work!

Re: A Geometer's Treasure box

Mike, congrats on the POP entry for this piece...no shock in my mind. I was impressed looking at the first couple pics of the outside only, only to be amazed at further attention to detail in the pieces inside. So...no decahedron? I suppose space only permits so much. ;) All kidding aside, excellent...

Re: Ambrose Maple NE Bowl

Beautiful bowl, love the shallow ogee shape. The feet don’t bother me at all with shape, though you’re probably right that some tippiness may develop over time. Probably easily tweaked if it does.

Re: Pyro'd vase

Wow, great start, look forward to seeing more. Pyro work gets mesmerizing, like a lot of surface embellishments. I try to dial down temp for doing lines to what I’m comfortable going a bit slower with and keeping good control. When doing background burning, I find that if it takes a while to complet...

Re: Cherry Burl Bowl?

Great job Jim! I also would have gone with shorter feet/legs but this is kinda cool and outside the norm, which I like too. I’ve done a few pieces that seem bowl like but have a turned in area at the top requiring hollowing tools, so the line between bowl/vase/hollow form gets fuzzy. I tend to think...

Re: Walnuts in walnut

Mike, I love the concept here embellishing with fruit of the same tree. I collected some walnuts thinking I might get creative someday...before they rot. We'll see. I'm with several on the blue perhaps taking too big a role, but really individual taste. I'm surprised no one saw the Grinch, especiall...

Re: Laburnum hollow form-12-3-2017 TOTW

Very nice form, crisp texture and love the sapwood opening. Congrats on TOTW honors. The amount of time one puts into a piece like this is more of an adventure in my opinion, and when it comes to extensive embellishments, until you get really quick and really well known, you'd likely starve. I suspe...

Very nice Pete. Sometimes things get busy on some segmented work, but this strikes a balance. Clean lines, the chevron placed in just the right area. Wood contrasts are wonderful as well.

Re: Recovered Ruins 30

Steely nerves you have Ron. A fellow turner many here know, Scott Hackler, use to always say "It's not thin enough". I think he'd be satisfied this one is thin enough. Well done and congrats on sale.

This one pulls together perfect proportions in my eye, without any one element really stealing the show. Outstanding! 2thumbsup 2thumbsup
