Another attempt at a suspended vessel with a one leg version, This is a piece of Teak simply finished in several coats of Teak oil & given a buff on the mop.
The leg is a piece of old pine that started out as a practice piece however I was pretty happy with the finished shape so kept it, it was ebonised with water based wood dye “green black” the base is a scrap of “some type” ?? found on the floor.
O/all size is 200mm high, the vessel is 140mm x 50mm mid section
The fixture is by way of a couple of cut down copper rose head nails similar to an earlier piece I did.
I made three bases in total, one from a stained piece of Kwila, one from some :black midnight” corian.
still not sute about the base so will probably make another one and change things around a bit
Any comments / suggestions welcome & thanks for the look

The vessel is terrific, not sure about the base although I don’t offer any ideas ….. I do like the one leg design. Your work is really taking on it’s own unique form. good for you. keep them coming.

as an after thought…..maybe the base should reflect the vessel…teak… buy inverted …..just a thought.

Nice work Pete. The one piece leg and vase flow very well together.

I for one really like it .
The leg flows well and although graceful and slender, easily carries the heavier vessel on it’s back.
Great experiment

I think it looks great. The base seems a little heavy – maybe its footprint is right, but it’s too tall? (Just the base, not the leg).
