Sometimes you never know what surprises are revealed in a piece of wood. I picked this up while walking my dog – thinking it would be practice material. The form is about 5” in height and is finished with oil and wax.

Thanks for the kind comments. During the roughing-out the blank was repositioned several times to control where the coloration is placed on the finished piece.
Jordan and Branch—Box Elder is within the maple family with cream sapwood and darker multi hued heartwood. The red/pink color is the result of a fungus.

Good looking piece. Anytime I am in the woods, I am looking for something to use, but never seem to find things that look like that!

Nice job positioning the grain. I also like the shape of the pot.

That may just be the prettiest little pot that I’ve ever seen. Certainly among the top ten.
