This elegant hollow form was green (wet)turned from a nicely figured piece of soft maple and then allowed to dry and warp naturally. The uneven drying has given the piece a wonderful, organic feel, especially around the ripples and curls from the crotch figure. The walls of this form are relatively thin giving it a light, delicate feel, but not so thin as to be fragile. The interior of the form is unfinished, and only lightly sanded, leaving an undulating surface from the hollowing tools. This particular hollow form features a distinctive collar around the opening. The bottom of the hollow form has been slightly dished to ensure that it will sit on a flat surface without rocking but is otherwise unadorned. Finished with Danish oil and buffed to a pleasant gloss, the finish enhances the wood and the subtle details and figure while still providing that unmistakable feel of wood. The perfect form to decorate your shelf or hold dry flowers on your dining room table.
