This piece was made in collaboration with Dixie Biggs from Gainesville, Florida. It is the latest interpretation of the Ploc series. I turned and carved the shape of the drop using the lathe, gouges and rasps, and made the carton and carved it with the woodburner. Then the piece was sent to Dixie who created the recess in the drop and textured it with powertools to create the orange peel texture and the fruit in the recess. She also did all the painting on the drop and the carton using acrylic paints. This piece is still available if you are interested.

  2. While I love the steampunk works, it is very interesting to see you do a piece with such bright colors. Very different and at the same time very similar. I LOVE IT!!!
