Missed this before, but some very nice wood work in these. The Maple is certainly interesting with the color changes, but I might like the Cedar better. I'd almost believe the labels were backwards. Be nice to know how this work was done. Looks pretty fragile.

Mike first turned the forms with thin walls and then used a Dremel tool to create the piercings..

For the "feet", the outside diameter is off the lathe and then the rest is carved away.

Whoa, a Dremel tool eh? Pretty interesting deal. I'd get 90% done and whack a big chunk out of it. But maybe he went a bit too far in places and created the "holes", either by design or accident. Still, a sweet example of artists thinking. Glad you shared. Probably pricey too...

Nice piece of woodworking.

For the photography I'd like to see a more dramatic fall-off of light on the background so the background was darker, even black at the top of the image. That would make the lighter wood stand out and add more dimension to the shot. In order to accomplish that you'd need a deeper set with more distance between the subject and the background paper.

A shadow side to the subject would also help to define the roundness of the piece. I guess what I'm saying is that for me the lighting on both the subject and the background is too flat.

As in, entering work in a Art Gallery show. Pieces will be submitted from all over the continent and can not physically be present for the jury to choose the show.

Sorry too flat. Needs more separation from the background. Juries only get to look at images for maybe 15 seconds. So, that image has to pop and the main focal has to be the piece.
