When you buy from a woodturner you get more than gift,
You get years of practice, mistakes, innovation and you give him lift,
When you buy from a woodturner you get more than a bowl,
You also get part of the woodturners soul.
This beautiful Spalted Silver Birch Vase with its outstanding grain and colour pattern, is 180mm high with a diameter of 70 mm at its widest point.
The wood, which has been drying in my wood store for the last 18 months, came from a tree which was being trimmed at a friends house in Lowton near Warrington.
After turning and sanding the vase, I have sealed the wood with cellulose sand and sealer and melamine lacquer before polishing to a soft seen with wax polish to enhance the grain .
Once I started turning the Silver Birch I could see the colour pattern of the spalting was spectacular. I hadn't decided what I was going to make, I just let the wood take me where it wanted to go. Once I could see the beautiful colour pattern I decided to make a slim vase.
I thought it would make a loverly gift and would look nice in any home.
