Artist Name: Hugh McKay
Title: Tripot #5
Details: Maple burl
Why It’s Notable:
When I first saw this photo, I thought, “Those are three nicely-proportioned vessels made of nicely-figured wood.” And then I looked again. What I failed to realize at first was that the three hollow vessels were actually made from a single piece of burl, and still connected!
This is a level of multi-axis lathe work that I have never encountered or imagined before, and it has reignited my interest in turning.
