Finally got this finished today. The vase is made from Tasmanian Oak and dyed with water based U-Beaut dyes, then sanded to 400 and finally finished with Krylon Clear Varnish.
There are 193 pieces and it measures 12 inches tall and 6.25 inches at its widest point.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
C & C welcome.

Bob.

Nice Job,

The blending of the finish from the black top to the almost natural finish at the base is certainly impressive.

A very nice vase with a great color scheme. Do you do the coloring while still on the lathe? I know those segmented turnings get tricky when they get that big. Well done.

Bob

You did a swell job on that.

The only think that stands out to me is the color selection. The light colors on the bottom make it seem very top heavy.
Other than that you had and did a fine selection of dying with the colors.

Dave, the dying is done on the lathe and spinning at the slowest possible speed. (178rpm) and applied with an Air Brush.

Looking better every time I see one of your new creations Bob, I can tell, this segmenting thing has gotten a grab on you. That certainly is some fine work with the air brush and dye also. Even tho this is a vase, it looks like a Genie could be hiding in there.
