These are absolutely beautiful.

Oh my goodness, those are beyond beautiful. I love wooden bowls and have a few, but those are truly works of art. I love them! They seem to be screaming to be touched and admired.

Thanks, VP. Needed a breather from posting about crooks and liars in and around the government.

POP, Thanks! They are called segmented woodturnings. Hundreds of pieces of wood precisely cut, glued back together again, then turned on a wood lathe.

As for them being touched and admired, I can't speak for the bowls, but screaming and moaning hasn't helped me yet... ;-)

OK, Stogie - I'm moving on. Enjoy the barb. ;-)

Laura, Thanks! The first one I use as a popcorn bowl on the rare occasion of watching a sci-fi or documentary DVD. Most of them end up as eye candy and dust collectors. ;-)

Very nice! The singularities and asymmetries in the pieces are especially pleasing. Very good work!

(linked to your blog for the first time from jp's (your profile there from your comments) - looks like it will be a regular read - your piece on Cobb trogs struck a sympathetic chord - I'm in the belly of the beast (hint: largest city in Texas) p.s. hope j.p. doesn't retire on us!

Thanks for the kudos, and the visit, racetoinfinity.

Been to Houston, last time in 1998 when I drove to Austin to assault GWB at the capital - he wasn't at work that day...

But I thought Dallas/Ft. Worth was the largest city in Texas...?

DFW is the largest metro area and (that all-important word in Wall St.-speak) "market" in Texas, but Houston edges out Dallas proper, population-wise; I do think Dallas gets the top spot for big hair, though it's a close call - between the big hair and the tank sized SUVs the McMansion women drive here, I need a periscope for my Corolla to see the way ahead. The big haired ones in general haven't much a clue - they're still looking in their rear view mirrors, like their hubbies.

Hey, if you ever make that drive again --- count me in !! I'm glad you covered the bees. Very troubling in nature. Not meaning a pun.

Those ARE beautiful-you do those as well as you bash necons;)

Never let the bad guys win...

Thanks, Prissy Patriot.
I'm working on a new one as we speak. Just what I need, more dust collectors. ;-)

As for the bad guys, sometimes they win - for a while, anyway.
