This is a wood vase made from the roots of a crabapple tree. It has some voids as well as natural edges and the grain is fantastic. There is considerably more work involved in making something from the roots of a tree but as you can see the results are very striking. There can also be big surprises as I found an old door hasp in the middle of this piece. It's 3 inches at the base, 6 inches at the top and 10 inches tall. It was finished with low gloss tung oil.
