This vessel is a turned and carved piece of Boxelder locally sourced in northwest North Carolina from a tree that needed to be removed from the property due to proximity to the home.
Once the piece was turned, it was carved using a chisel and rotary burr. This piece is finished with an oil and wax blend.
This vessel would be beautiful holding large dry flower bouquets or simply admired as it is – the sharp peaks along the rim are quite delicate.
Boxelder has a wonderful buttery yellow color, however it is also known for its vivid bright red coloring that comes from the Boxelder beetle boring in the tree.
The red coloring is present in this piece along both the rim and lower portions along with some slight grey from spalting along the bottom.
