Benthic: of, relating to, or occurring in the depths of the ocean (from Merriam-Webster). So dubbed by my friend, Tom, this form is known as The Benthic Vessel (in red oak). No one is sure whether they like it or not at first, including me.

Another spectacular piece of art. Inspiring.
Thank you, Don.
It’s gorgeous Jack. I’m inspired to get to the lathe! Great photography of the process too!
Thank you, Jason, for the comment, it means a lot. Are you still using grandad’s lathe?
I think it’s pretty darn cool… It’s good to see you playing with form and letting it take you where it wants to go.
Deeply moving textures and shapes and photographs. The way the light interacts with the wood feels almost mythical. How beautiful.
Hi Jack – ‘Anonymous’ is me, Steven McCabe @ my wordpress site http://www.poemimage.com – I am having more than a difficult time accessing your site. Nevertheless the series of images and title of the work and the work itself is gorgeous.
