A friend of mine dropped of a couple pieces of plum from one of his trees he needed to cut down. Last year I roughed out the vase and patiently waited for it to dry.
A couple of months ago he passed away, I will miss his companionship. He was a very good friend, and I am grateful for the time I had in getting to know him.
I did not feel comfortable turning this vessel any thinner, the bark inclusions started flying everywhere.
It is finished with 3 coats of boiled linseed oil.
I will present the vase to his Widow tomorrow
Thanks for looking.
