I created a pair a cherry vases – or hollow forms. I wanted to try a different shape from my previous versions and I’m pleased with the results. The spalting that showed up was a wonderful surprise and really made for some interesting forms on the sides.

Projects were finished with a coat of Danish Oil and a gloss lacquer spray.

Enjoy and I welcome any comments!

These look great! I haven’t done any turning yet something like this is my new goal.

9.9 times out of 10 spalting is a nice surprise. It really makes your vases stand out.
