It is based on a Pittosporum seedpod, which is about 6mm (3/16") in length. It is a multi-axis turned piece with three sides then carved in side and out. After the carving and sanding I sandblasted the whole piece. I have learned quite a lot about the proses a seed goes through when it opens making this piece. It is sanded with steel wool oooo then finished with Haarlem oil.
