This is a Southwest style pot that I made for my wife last Christmas. It is made of Cherry and it is approximately 10 inches in diameter and 7 inches tall.
The lower portion features a ‘swirl’ pattern that was made by using pyrography tools. Both the lower portion, the rim and the inside were dyed black. The dyed parts were buffed with steel wool to give them an antique appearance.
Working with Cherry is always enjoyable (except that it makes me crave Cherry pie! :)). I was able to get a consistent wall thickness that was reasonably thin therefore giving the pot an acceptable lightness when handled.
This was a fun project, especially since it was to be a gift. Yes, she was very pleased.
Thanks for looking. Comments welcomed.
