I drew inspiration for this non-wilting flower from Harry's projects, he has made many, I have made One; and I was graciously given a length of wood, which I used a piece of for the-Tulip from another fellow Lumberjock. PASs- when we met at a craft show almost 2 years ago.
Species unknown; as you might know PASs has several Beautiful projects made from Dunnage, which this came from: I think he has since identified some of this stuff. —- Nice colors and nice to turn, maybe it came from one of those —Tulip tree?

Finished Tulip with a little Mineral oil & Beeswax- One coat of Poly wiped on the vase & twig just to clean it up.

Woods; Elm twig, Crape Myrtle, & Tulip tree??

Thanks for looking!

Sweet.
That is some good turning with those thin walls.
I like the bent out tips of the petals.

Beautiful work and definitely an eye catcher.
