Buckeye burl is a very unique west coast burl which forms on the root system of the tree. The random color patterns that naturally occur along with the sculptural edges make this one of the most interesting burls that I work with. All of the circular vases listed here come with a glass vial to be used with live flowers. All other flower vases containing either a glass vial or metal cup will hold water. Flowers not included.
26.5" x 10". Curly maple veneer, Baltic Birch plywood, Ebonized Walnut, Poplar, Camatillo. The curly maple used in this piece is considered to be exhibition grade and is hard to come by. The ikebana cup supplied will hold water for live, dried or silk flowers.
Circular Ikebana Vase, wall hanging, 20" in diameter. MDF, curly maple, bubinga, red mallee. Metal cup.
The process for turning hollow forms is to roughly turn the piece to size, leaving it oversized for a few months to allow for drying. The outside is turned first, then the inside is slowly removed with turning tools by hand while spinning on the lathe. After the piece is dry, it is returned to the lathe and turned to it's final shape and wall thickness. The solid block of wood that I started with is now a beautiful hollow vessel.
