Into the Vortex was woodturned from a piece of rich walnut wood and then the rim was carved for a scallop efffect. Next we carved a recess 'ring' into it to accept a mixture of crushed turquoise and aventurine gemstones inlaid with epoxy as its binder. After sanding we added the 2 tone effect of acrylic pearl paints with a spiral crackle effect. Finally trying everything together with pyrography or wood burning the stipple swirl effect.
