    i love this one! im wondering if you would like to sell or trade for something like that? what i have in mind is to take something like that and make an Intarsia that would fit in it so it looks like an animal emerging or hiding or something.

    this is something i found online that made me think of it. but i like something like your piece and maybe a bear (or for a comic thought, a bear booty - like hes going in to hibernate. im not sure i am talented enough, but i would like to try!

    just a thought, but pm me if you might be interested.

    Cool bowl— really like the contrast— great way to show what’s hiding in there—figured pretty quickly that wasn’t done on a lathe.
