This elegant hollow form was green (wet)turned from a nice, subtly 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 on the heartwood (darker) side of the form. 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. The bottom of the hollow form has been slightly dished to ensure that it will sit on a flat surface without rocking and has been embellished with a textured pattern and several concentric rings demonstrating that the bottom was turned with as much attention to detail as the rest of the piece. 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.
