I can see why this won first place. I love Rosewood and this is a fine example why! I haven’t gotten around to making fluted bowls/vases but the time is coming! Could you list dimensions and finish used along with a bit of construction methods? Fine, superb job by the way.

What a beautiful piece. Not surprised in it taking first place. Well deserved.

Some of you asked about size and construction methods: Size is 13” high and 11” at the top, Vase was turned down grain leaving sapwood at the top, Layout and carving is fairly simple but difficult to relay without a hands-on session or some type of visual presentation. The finish is lacquer which I use on almost every piece I make, it is durable and you are able to revisit it to make repairs or spruce it up if it loses luster.
