In my personal utopia, every useful thing would be a piece of art. I love that it's both highly artistic and yet absolutely functioning. The carving is so stunning; I especially love the ribbon-like pattern.
um, it was wet. I didn't wait enough for it to dry after washing it in water, very evident in the right-side picture. It takes Jeff probably 6 hours just to carve it, so he makes them for him and sometimes for a friend.
