Holly and Ebony *PIC*

Keith Tompkins
>My latest piece, holly with ebony details. This piece involved multi-axis turning as well as deep hollowing. Finish is low-luster lacquer. It was awarded a first place at the recent NWA Showcase, Saratoga, NY.

Note the twisting effect where the turning approaches the ebony bead. I am attempting to take a two-dimentional concept, such as a sheet of paper, twist it, and apply it in a three-dimentional form.

I would appreciate your comments and critique...Keith
