Handcrafted Segmented Walnut and White Ash Vessel. This Southwest Style Vessel contains 181 pieces of Walnut and White Ash both domestic woods from the USA. Each piece is cut and sanded on the precise angle to make the circle that has been determined in the drafting stage. The layers are staked and after curing the piece is turned on a lathe to the shape on the outside and inside, as drafted. A FDA approved glue is used throughout the process. It is hand sanded and a durable food safe finish is applied in multiple steps to achieve the satin finish that enhances this beautiful vessel. Due to the grain of the wood no two are alike making each piece "one of a kind". As the bowl is moved different aspects of the grain appear adding to the interest and value of the vessel. If it appears dry or feels dry wiping it with mineral oil and buffing it with a microfiber cloth will restore its luster.
This beautiful vessel would be outstanding on your table or mantel. It would make a totally amazing anniversary gift!
It is signed, dated and numbered adding value as a piece of art.
