I had this idea in my sketchbook for a while, roots, growing into some sort of wood, then growing into wood planks. I really like how it turned out. I'll be using it as further inspiration to make other pieces. I took a pic of the pot upside down because I think it even looks good upside down.

Here is the second pitcher. The handle looks and feels a lot better than the first pitcher's. You can't really tell in these pictures but the sides are squashed inwards more so it takes on more of a shoebox shape. It has a classical shape to it I think. The cut out areas I made to go with the spout's curve.
Here's the first pitcher I made. I haven't really done much with handles, but I think this turned out alright. The form has two different sides, one more wing-like, and the other some sort of grotesque muscle texture. The base is in the same style as some of my other carved out root pieces.
