This hollow form measures 7.25” tall by 2.5” wide and is turned from end grain Tree of Heaven wood. It was an experiment of color. I used yellow aniline dye, peacock blue aniline dye, spray lacquer, and Briwax tinted black. All comments are welcome and appreciated.

Beautiful Joe. Now let’s see a red one of the same design and you’ll have a matching Christmas set.

Very, Very nice.

Thanks for posting it

Can you make these longer or bigger around joe. Just wondering I have a couple bowl steadies that you may be interested in, if you go bigger. Beautiful piece, looks almost transparent.

Outstanding color, I agree with the comment above, it is almost translucent. I have never heard of Heavenwood either, have to check it out.

Very Neon-lithic. Does it glow in the dark too? I think you can serve a potion in this one.
