I saw some shrink pots at the bodgers ball this year and these look amazing, I love the concept and will definitely be adding it too my excessively long list of things to try!

Beautiful work Jarrod. Great texture and carving on the right one. Creates the illusion of a band wrapped around the container. Really interesting.

I noticed the corresponding notches in the lid/container of the blue one. Is this to show where the lid lines up best? If so, that is a great idea. These boxes seldom end up perfectly round, so a tight-fitting lid fits best (or at all) in one particular orientation. Seems like a great way to mark it -- if that is what it is for (I may be way off).

david- yes, that's what the notch is for...still working on the concept though, not sure if i like it...but as you say the lid only fits one way. the carved up yellow is basically a study piece...I was tying out some different ideas i had in my head. I had more but ended up carving it off and left just the texture....
paul-hope you try out again to help make up your mind.

Very good. Milk paint?! I've notice several images of partially coloured spoons recently (mainly Swedish I think, might have been Wille's/Peter's) which look v. attractive. I see Jogge is using a lot of colour for the art carvings on his website - it's a very bright, airy, modern website.
