Burl Vessel- Sugar Maple
Each vessel is a one-of-a-kind work of art that was created over a three month period. Natural edged openings in finely figured native Vermont burled and spalted wood is inlaid with pigmented resins and embedded metal leaf. All pieces are hollow forms, most have very small openings. These vessels are decorative and, although sealed, they will not hold water. Pieces are finished with paste wax, occasional buffing with a soft cloth is usually sufficient to maintain the shine.
