Gumnut Series
The Gumnut Series is a progression from the Foliage Series. Inspiration is drawn from the huge variety of Australian gumtrees and their seedpods.

The adding of the gumnuts or seedpods does mean that whilst turning the shape, allowance has to be made for the planned for seed pods. This is done by leaving raised "collars" at the required levels. Once the pods are roughed out the rest is carved away.
