This is another HF from the willow branch. I not sure about the form of this one but it is what it is. It measures 7” tall by 7 1/2” wide aniline dyed and finished with wipe on poly. Sorry for the crappy pictures. Thanks for looking. Lou

From one Lou to another; very nice and the shape looks good. Never tried the dye but one of these days I will. Did you use black first or just the green.

Another beautiful piece. Like other shave said, it looks like ceramic or glass. The colour and finsh are great. I like the live edge on the top as well.
