This hollow form reminds me of what might have been if a vase was made from the wood Moses brought down from the mountain top. I had a difficult time capturing the subtleties of the different colors in the flamed wood grain. It measures 4.5 inches by 7 inches and is turned from end grain maple. It is finished with aniline dyes and spray lacquer.

All comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

Beautiful form. There sure is art in that grain!

Joe, yet another incredible turning. I like the combination of this dye with the flamed maple.

Thanks for posting it.

The turning is great. The way the grain moves is flame-like and fantastic.

Like what you are starting to do with the feet. It completes the form much better than the flat ones did.
