Very nice Ron, you have brought up a great finish on that wood grain, is the copper leaf applied with heat or glue?

ok, I admit, I am on a color binge at my house, so I am speaking from that view. I like this, but to my jaded eye, I’d like to see more distinct color difference between the vase & the leaf. streaks of copper? reddish? the picture may not represent the colors, either. maybe it is more colorful than I see on my monitor?? anyhoo, I am enjoying your artistic endeavors.

Nicely crafted. I have been thinking of using gold leaf on some of my work. You’ve just inspired me to go ahead. Thanks for sharing.

Ron, this is a beautiful piece. I love the graceful lines of this piece.
