    A tea light holder.

    For my mum's birthday. I wanted to make something with an organic shape and I love wood carving. I never make a drawing for a design like this. I just start and see where it ends.

  24. Can someone tell me something about this oire-nomi?

    This was a late night impulse buy and I bought it mainly because the rough, unfinished thing just looks so damn cool. It wasn't too pricey either.
