This silver maple hollow vessel turned out better than I first thought it would. The finish is layered aniline dyes starting with black, then red, and yellow. The top coat is gloss lacquer. Thanks for looking. Your comments are always welcome!

Very very nice. The colouration and sheen remind me of pottery.

Fire is an understatement—it really glows and the shape is perfect. The depth of the finish is amazing; I don’t know how to explain it.
