Artist's note: I guess you could call this a "signature" piece for me. Small opening, thin walls, and a really nice piece of maple burl.

About the artist: Mike Jackofsky is a graduate of Georgetown University and the University of San Diego School of Law, and about 10 years ago he gave up the practice of law to become a full time, professional woodturner. Over the years Mike has specialized in making hollow vessels, most of which are natural edge pieces made from unique burls, but he also turns bowls, including thin, natural edge open bowls, off-balance asymmetrical pieces, and sculptural forms.

Mike’s work is in many private collections and is on display in the permanent collections of the Sam Maloof Historical Residence Museum in Alta Loma, CA, the Mingei International Museum in San Diego, CA, and the AAW in Minneapolis, MN. He has designed a line of hollowing tools called “Hollow-Pro” that use carbide cutters, and he recently produced a 2 disc DVD set called “Woodturning with Mike Jackofsky: Making A Hollow Vessel”.
