    Celadon

    Camphor Laurel 6x7" finished in WOP and buffed. The rule of thirds here has been tossed out as its based on Asian shapes and forms. I have attempted to produce a form that is common in many part of South East Asia along with the rolled or curved rim treatment.

    Very nice as usual, Hughie. I can see the resemblance in form to certain Asian ceramic pieces I've seen. And I'd say your influence survived the translation nicely, while still having your signature look.

    It has a pleasing organic look to it, very nice!

    The design works really well with the grain of the wood. Well done.

    I'm not sure which is most important. The beautiful wood made the shape look great or the beautiful shape made the wood look great. Either way, it is a winner.

    Enjoy,

    Thanks guys, this one was something of a first as I have made several attempts in the past to marry some of the Asian shapes with wood turning with mixed success and it turned out better than expected.
