Elm Hollow Form

About 6″ tall, 3.5″ diameter. Lacquer finish.

If it looks crocked, that’s how it dried – the knot on one side sorta sunk in while the surrounding area bulged out. Gives it some character.

Elm Hollow Form

Hollow from from an Elm crotch. About 10″ diameter and 6″ high.

Turned side-grain – that is, like a bowl, where the mouth of the form is pointing at the tree’s center (pith) and the foot pointing towards the bark.

Bark inclusion bridged with a single Wenge pewa.

Interior painted flat black to enhance the negative space of the interior. Exterior finished with walnut oil to highlight the figure and grain.
