'Old' Pod

Sandblasted Yew Hollow Form
This one has been a long time in the making, at least a year. I had turned the form originally when I was doing lots of 'pointy ended' forms and just hadn't found the right base to mount it on. It sat on the shelf waiting to be finished, when I came across this piece of bogwood, it was soaked through (had been in an aquarium) and has taken several months to dry out.
 The form has warped a bit, which can be seen in the pic but this doesn't hurt as it's in keeping with the natural 'pod' appearance, I have also added to the natural look by adding a few carved lines mainly near the top and base and giving the whole thing a good going over in the sand blast cabinet to give a nice wrinkled look.
