    Septarillion - Red Mallee Burl Turned and Carved

    Hey all, I just completed a new piece for this year's Artprize competition here in Grand Rapids, MI. Man, talk about a carving challenge! In fact, I didn't know if I should post this in the woodturning forum or the carving forum.

    Title: Septarillion
    Wood: Red Mallee Burl
    Size: 19"x13"x2"
    Finish: General Finishes Enduro-Var

    Here's a link to photos that I took along each stage of the creation process.

    Matt, that is a beautiful piece. Good luck in the competition.

    I like the carving design but the only negative for me is that the beautiful wood overpowers the beauty of the carved area. At least that is how it appears in the photos and it is just my subjective opinion.

    Its times like seeing this piece of art along with many others that people here produce that i keep thinking we deserve to have a talent show like these other tv hits that expose hidden talent.

    I would love to see you on the big stage Matt i think you got it natural.

    Well done.
    cheers
