Notes As a sculptor, Michelle Holzapfel uses the lathe to quickly remove wood to a rough form. In "Fishes Bottle Vase" a multi-axis approach combines two artistic objectives. She releases the fish from the "bowl" while creating "handles" for the vase. This piece displays turnining and carving used in sculptural harmony.
