Hollow form Black Poplar Root

In the last few days i've given in a lot on turning..
I'm no longer used, i got arms quite tired...
Pieces weren't so balanced, and all these Ghost haven't make me feel so Loose...

Both are Hollow form,
the firstOne is 40 cm large in one direction 30 cm in the other, and around 18 cm high...Hole is 4 cm.
The second is 31 cm high, for 20 cm large....





Here When was in the beginning....
Had this bulb not so attached to the main body,
i couldn't make a chuck grip on this bulb, and didn't like to delete it too,
so that came the idea of make an hollow keepin'all the work on the faceplate...



After spoke with some people from "Legnofilia forum" i made some change on this piece...
I have better define the separation between the base and the jar,
and thinned the base as well...
i'm gratefull to those who took some time for give me their own impressions...








The second Hollow piece was more difficoult than the previous one,
becouse was almost all festering, with a lot of bark in and out...
Before put it on the lathe, i clean as much as i can,
used epoxy grout melt with gold and silver colours and aluminium powder to join each other the parts more dancers and frail...
I named the piece "Looking' for Land resources"...









Cheers
