Mutant II

Woods: Vessel, Matai. Leaf and Stem, Jarrah and Tawa and the tongue, Rewarewa driftwood.
Length: 500mm (19-5/8")
Height: 160mm (6-1/4")

The seed pod is based on a deformed Pittosporum seed, which had two sections instead of three and thought it would work well with this piece.

I entered it into a Manawatu Open Day woodturning competition on Sunday May 16 2010 and got the best unturned piece the Wellington Woodworkers Trophy. Not quite sure where the judge was coming from but you can never tell what will happen on the day!!!
