    So, I have a thing for brushes and bowls. Yes, I admit it in front of all men. I love to study the shape and ascetics of brushes and bowls. Hand feel and a sensual shape grab my eyes much like a curvy woman. So in my search I've decided I must make my own. Ordered several knots in various materials and sizes. And have made a few introductory pieces for my collection. Anyways I digress.... what do yall think of these 2 specimens?

    One is Cast and turned from a deep metallic blue and white swirl acrylic with a 24mm boars hair knot that I've cast myself
    The other is from black walnut and coated with spare urethane to protect from the liquids it will get a 24mm maggard synthetic knot [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Magnificent products. I especially liked the first two photos. If you can somehow add small asterisks, it will look like a reflection of the starry sky in the ocean. Sorry, I can not explain my thought in English well.

    Великолепные изделия. Первые два фото мне особенно понравились. Если можно каким-то образом, добавить маленькие звёздочки, это будет похоже на отражение звёздного неба в океане. Извините, я не могу хорошо объяснить свою мысль на английском языке.

    Very cool bowls and brush handles indeed. Awesome job especially for these being introductory pieces.

    I like the blue as well, but I love things made out wood. I think I like the Walnut bowl and brush handle the best. They look very natural and clean!

    Beautiful work. It is amazing the way that this hobby morphs into tangents related to this hobby. You are very talented.
