>This is a piece called "Tempest" that I have been playing with for about 7 months. Total of about 16 hours in on it. Maple burl hollow form, carved, pyrography (hatch marks), honey locust thorns (feet), chestnut stain (black) under black gesso. 6" tall x 5 1/4" diameter. The design was inspired by Terry Scott & his work when he came to visit earlier this year from New Zealand. Terry spent about 2 hours talking with me about the design and carving techniques when he was here.
