Here's another piece that will be available at my booth during ArtStop. Made from a crotch section of a long ago cut down walnut tree, this vase has lots of character in the grain and a natural edge bark rim. It's about 13" tall and 5" in diameter.
Once again I took this pic with my cell phone so in order to really see the beautiful wood grain on this piece, stop by the Mansion at 28th and Ingersoll in Des Moines from 5-9pm on the 24th and 11-5pm on the 25th. I'll be right out on Ingersoll Ave with my lathe making more unique wooden forms.
See you there!
