This is a wooden vase I made more than 10 years ago out of many kinds of small pieces I had been collecting all the time. I was Inspired by a real stone wall in a near by park where I lived. These wooden pieces are glued around thin skeleton made of many 6mm wide plywood rings glued on the top of each other in the shape of the vase but smaller. I had to concave each piece to make it suitable for gluing one by one and raw by row. I did that leaving few millimetres gap between them and filled it with mixture of saw dust and PVA to look like CEMENT and normalize a real stone wall appearance. Except the skeleton, it is built of more than 500 STONES and stands 900mm tall. YES, it took very long (few months), but in the end, it gave me full satisfaction.
