Love the Persimmon! I’ve only turned balusters and chair parts…..maybe I should try a bowl. Thanks for the inspiration!
Thank you, James
Wow, this one is really gorgeous, buddy. I love the color of persimmon! Also, those beetle larvae tracks look almost floral.
Thanks, Mikey. I’m really enjoying that element of the larval excavations as well.
It adds another miraculous element of collaborating with nature. Well– I suppose all woodwork is a collaboration with the nature world, but this seems even more so because of the little creature burrowing the holes and creating the patterns.
Oh that is beautiful. Just a beautiful piece of work. It really feels like an ancient persimmon vessel. Perfect name. The ‘accidental’ streaks feel like like a haiku writing itself on the surface.
