Vessel in alder


This alder vessel was hand-carved through a single session.  I chose to work it this way for several reasons but to be honest it was mostly because the colour and grain that were coming through with each swish of the knife were so interesting that I couldn't help myself. I also find that not allowing for time to pause and reflect can sometimes be to the benefit of the piece in terms of not overcomplicatingh what should be a simple design.
