My Gift Exhange PRIZE Arrived! *PIC*

Matt Birchfield (SW Virginia)
>Hi All,

On Friday my exchange gift arrived from Chris Andrew who lives in Oregon. I know that this was not a contest of any sort, but the gift I received from Chris is truly a top prize. I only wish that my photograph could begin to do his "signature piece" the justice it deserves.

The bowl is made from Myrtlewood (California Laurel) and Madrone with a kiln-formed glass bowl set within the two woods. The piece is flawless in form and finish with delicate detail carving to accent the grain of the wood. I'm proud to add this piece to my collection.

Chris also included a 2+ page letter with information about the wood species and the processes of fusing and slumping the glass in a kiln.

Thank you Chris for the BEAUTIFUL bowl!

The photo you see is the only one taken so far that I would consider posting. I'll post another soon that shows the form of the bowl.
