Story of the Ambrosia Maple Hollow Form
I turn a lot of hollow forms because they’re may favorite. This piece has no foot, its a round bottom hollow form. I got in a mood where I wanted to experiemnt. I looked up graphics on ants for about two days, different ants, pictures, drawings, woodburnings, I really had this concept in my head that I wanted to do a piece that would catch your eye and make you want to look down inside the hollow form. The trail of ants comes up inside the vessel , and the top ant pokes down inside the rim, because that makes your eyes follow the line and look down inside. This is something that a lot of woodturners won’t do because they don’t want you to look down inside, if its not finished properly etc.
I wanted to do the opposite, I wanted to make people not only look at the outside but the inside.
