This hollow vessel is around eight inches tall and five inches at its widest diameter. The body is black walnut (Juglans nigra) and the lid is black cherry (Prunus serotina). The finish is spray can gloss lacquer buffed and waxed on a beale system.
I was originally planning another in my series of suspended hollowforms, but the shape that began to form on the lathe reminded me of a fat sake bottle, so I went with it. I’m not sure if I’m like the lid – I shaped it like an old cherry bomb firecracker.
Comments, questions, or critiques welcomed – thanks for looking!
