    Been playing with the design of the vase I did the other day, Here's a couple of variations.
    This was a pig to photograph. This is a 16" tall cedar vase that has been made in a similar way to the previous one. I have heavily textured the cedar with a wire brush on the lathe and it is a lot deeper than I can show in the photos. It was then ebonised. It was hollowed out to about 5mm and is surprisingly light to pick up. On taking the photos I noticed that there has been a little bit of movement since gluing up though the cedar registered as quite low in moisture content before I turned it. Probably the hot weather we have had. C&C welcome as always.

    Second one is 10" tall and 5" diameter, not sure of the wood, another anonymous donation fom the gardener LOL. The decorative work was an experiment by Mo, pyro'd background and coloured daisies.

    Both absolutely beautiful. Love the ebonising on the first one.
