I lucked into a piece of hard maple log a few months back. Turned it into two vases the shape and form seemed good but hard white maple leaves very little grain and seems quite plain. So I decided to try some woodburning to dress it up. The first is 7H x 9W, second 8H x 11W. Both are 1/4 inch thick. Thanks for looking.

Very nice vases Tom. The woodburning is superb and really nice designs, especially the second one :)

Well done Tom. I like the texturing as well. Is it in the burning or did you texture separately?

A beautiful Pair !
Love the burn texture look and the second one looks like it has some spalting which gives it porcelain look .
Love them both .

These are two lovely vessels. They are outstanding hollow forms and I love the shapes and wood burned patterns.

Thanks for sharing.
