These were made from a root burl that was harvested 45 years ago. It was very dry. Turned hollowed and bleached. This piece was bleached 3 time to get it much lighter in color. Edges were burned with the torch. C & C welcome

The form of this vessel is really nice, and the live edge goes well with it. I have some box elder burl myself… I hope to make something this nice with it.
