The following art pieces are in the E/P series which uses an empty container as the core and has been shaped around it to produce what promises to be a unique vessel.  The first example shown was the first piece developed in this series, and a detail step-by-step plan is included in my book, "Unique Vessels: How do you make these things?" found on the home page of this web site.  Detailed construction information about other E/P pieces can also be found in posts in my Blog, "Apatchablue Studio"
