Welcome to From the Forum - Chosen by the Members

In order to add an area of interest to the forums and to encourage interaction between the different forum sections, the forum members can post to our 'Members' Choice' thread to act as a showcase for a piece of work chosen by a member each week as their 'piece of the week'.

This week's members' choice is ’Sycamore Hollow form’ by Edbanger. Picked by Crataegus, here’s what they had to say about the piece: "At the end of last week I was wondering if I would have many offerings to choose from, but I should have known better. As it turns out, this week’s decision has been very hard to make.

"So, who have I chosen? This week it is edbanger’s pierced and textured sycamore hollow form. It is in the style of an empty seed pod and combines elegance of form and proportion with skilful texturing and piercing. Given the limited aperture he had to work with I remain in great admiration of the proficiency with which Ed accomplished the piercing while maintaining the excellent finish of the internal surface."

Congratulations again to Edbanger and we will bring you another chosen piece next week. In the meantime, you can find out more about the piece by clicking here or take a look at Edbanger’s previous work by clicking here.
