Very nicely done! Really interesting carving and very well executed. Good polishing job, too.


I like the idea of the stand, but I find the straight line of the white metal hanger seen through the openings of the carving disturbing. I sat and looked at this for a long time, trying to decide if the color were different (say brass or clear glass or plexiglass) or if the shape were different (s shaped to follow or in juxtaposition to the curves) if I would like it better. I do like the side view profile, which shows the flatness and doesn't compete with the carving.


I know it's just the stand, but it's such a nice carving I want to see it displayed where nothing detracts from it.


There's a huge difference between your work now and a few months ago, I look forward to seeing what you do in the future as you are improving your carving and techniques so quickly. Again, really good job.
