This hollow form vase was turned from end grain maple. It measures about 7” tall and 6” wide. It has a coat of red leather dye, yellow leather dye, turquoise leather dye and multiple coats of spray lacquer. It is difficult to see from the photographs, but it has some great iridescent qualities to it.

All comments are welcome and appreciated.

That is really nice. From way back here looks like a Glass Vase with that Slick coat on it.

Very nice…

Wow Joe – That looks great, reminds me a bit of what is known as pigeons blood, a glaze on pottery that chinese used on some of their vases. I haven’t seen it for a long time though. Great shape and color. One of my fav’s.

YUM! Looks like a giant candy apple! Great results with the 3 primary colors. Do you have to sand in between each color? I really like your sense of shape and color and your experimental thinking. FUN and BEAUTIFUL piece!

WOW! Not familiar with stains and finishes but it looks like you are setting new standards of quality. Fantastic! I for one have never seen wood finished like that before and it’s great. People will be looking at that and wonder if it is wood. My favorite of yours also. A real joy!

I really like the design too.

Thanks for posting it.
