The suggester said: "Though there are many fabulous pieces in *BNEP's gallery, and I have agonised over which one to suggest, Discite moniti has such a wonderfully organic feel that makes this particular piece stand out. The beautiful craftsmanship really highlights the gorgeous grain of the wood." (

Congratulations on the DD. You should consider participating with this work in the CoolClimate project hosted by dA: [link] It's an extraordinarily well-supported project sponsored by major environmental organizations with judges drawn from the environmental movement, art professionals associated with top museums and artists committed to environmental statements.
Hi Dans-Magic, thank you, but the piece was at the first stage a spheric form which i blowed up in a moment of inadvertence. I shoot this on the firewood stack... After my child take it from the fire wood to tell me i should not burn that, i take the broken parts away to make this half spheric form which is finally a nicer form for me. Some things have their own will
Thank you TaJMoX; Im am surprised of the DD. I came back from vacation yesterday so i could not answer earlier.
The local market ist very poor for selling such pieces. The people want to hav salad bowls and so on which i dont want to make. But this gives me the freedom making things that i want to make and i get my earnings from my business (Internet & digital imaging)
