Thanks Larry. The signature is burned on with a Detail Master wood burner and fine tip.
I like natural edge work, and that's a good 'un!
Nice looking SW NE.

I love natural edge things. You hit this one out of the park. I love it.
I missed seeing this one earlier, Ted. Nice job on a very challenging piece. You did a good job of maintaining the form of the vessel as it passes through the wing.

Wayne, I posted this on a couple of other sites and people either wanted it to be a Southwest hollow form or a natural edge bowl...but not both. Some folks found it unsettling because their eye kept shifting from one form to the other. I sympathize..it's not a form I'm likely to repeat. It started as a NE bowl, but the blank was badly cracked so I ended up with a smaller bottom with spittoon shape wings... not my favorite shape. That's when I decided to do a SW form...just couldn't bring myself to cut away those nice bark wings
Ted I think it is a beauty. May not be the norm but I like it being different. Really well done.

Ted you a fine artist. I find i could stare at you pieces for a long time continuously seeing different things in the shape and finish
You mentioned spitoon and before i saw your post its one thought that came to mind. But i also see an eye and eyelid as if the eye and its eyelid were sectioned out from the skull socket.
Another gallery piece in my view and finish is excellente. :thumbup:
Where do you come across a piece of wood like this?
