Intricate detail throughout this elaborate piece accents the grapes, vines and leaves bringing them into very lifelike relief. This is a true masterpiece created by the artist Nairi Safaryan. Amazingly, it is completely carved from one block of boxwood.
The vase stands 13.3/4” tall with a diameter of 3.1/2”.

Oh my goodness! I have never seen such a delicate carving! This is simply awesome and if it were in a arts show, I am sure you will have a best in show winner. I am going to be watching for more of your posts.

It’s obvious why you chose boxwood – far too intricate for a softer wood. The best example of this style that I’ve seen.

How thick were the walls of your turning before you started carving?

Very awesome piece and it shows how intricate and steady of hand you are. Great job.
Would love to see more photos or your carvings and maybe close ups.

Thanks for all your comments. First I made a 3/4” diameter hall on a lathe. The rest of the carving I made with hand tools.
