Great piece

Austin,

This is a great piece. What size and did you fill it with pitch to work on it? Congratulations.

Thanks Fred and Nelson

I've seen a lot of your work and appreciate your compliments. The vase is 4 inches and was worked over a steel mandrel from the outside only. After outlining and detailing the leaves I used 2 different butchers to get the high relief along with frequent annealing.

Butchers?

Not familiar with the term butchers. Can you explain?

Butchers

Fred,
I'm sure you call these tools something else but I posted a crude picture. I just don't know how to add it to this post. Let me know what you call these tools.
