This elegant hollow form was turned from a nice, subtly figured piece of soft maple crotch and features all kinds of character. The top surface has several different forms of curly figure - typical of crotch sections, as well as several bark inclusions, one of which pierces through to the interior. The underside of the of has almost as much interest as top with some spalting, several streaks of colour. This hollow form has been turned very thin, weighing in at just 95 g, it is light and delicate to the touch and a pleasure to hold. The interior of the form is unfinished, and only lightly sanded, leaving an undulating surface from the hollowing tools. The bottom of the hollow form has been slightly dished to ensure that it will sit on a flat surface without rocking Finished with Danish oil and buffed to a pleasant gloss, the finish enhances the wood and the subtle details while still providing that unmistakable feel of wood. The perfect form to decorate your shelf or hold dry flowers on your dining room table.
