    This has been in the works for a good while, wanted to enter it in the state fair and the deadline is a couple of days from now, so I got motivated to finish it. Most of the work was carving and sanding, but some turning too. Poured black tinted casting resin in the base to secure everything, and hide the sausage making. Added a frog at the last minute on a whim. about 2 feet tall. Also trying to think of a catchy title, so recommendations welcome....

    Hugely creative! I know you spent a bunch of time on this, from the little I know about carving, etc. Great job and best of luck at the State Fair. Chuck

    I know nothing about carving other than I can't do it. I do know this is a beautiful piece of work!

    How about "Wood-n-Water Lillies"?

    I saw this in person pre-frog when it was still sausage. It was amazing in pieces and is even better all together. I couldn’t figure how Barry got those spirals. He let me in on the method. One of these days I’ll try it, but I’d have to copy something cause I just don’t have the artistic vision of Barry.

    Very cool! Love the arrangement!

    Twisted Lillies might work as a title.

    Simply amazing. A ribbon winner for sure. It took a lot of talent and commitment to carve that beauty.

    Sorry you asked Rodney! lol.......It turned out to be kind of a mess, so I put it out of my mind cause it pisses me off thinking about it. In a nutshell; went to the artist reception a few days after the start of the fair, I found my two pieces I entered and discovered they had mistakenly switched tags for them; the title, category, and sale price, I received no awards, not even sure they were judged and in what category. Also they had already sold the swamp lilies piece for $475, the price that was supposed to be for the other piece, a vase. Price for swamp lilies was supposed to be $975. They went back to the buyer and asked them if they want it, for $500 more bucks, They said no of course. It was only 10 bucks for entry fee, and most of the people running it were volunteers, so I guessed I shouldn't have expected too much.....
