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." ( Suggested by j14v6 and Featured by MyntKat )

I would love to get my hands on something like this and add some bio-organic skin and wire to it - turn it into ' living planet ' . I think this is superb and I want one .

Great work - but do you get paid for the hours you put into your work?
It takes me some times 2 days to create a bowl but I never get 2 days pay....

Any tips?

erm?.....how could the diameter be double as long as the height?....the height IS....A diameter so they cannot have different lenghts, eh?....

or did you mean something else and it was jsut a bad translation?

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)
