Mulberry Heart Vessel [Apr 2022] get a link to this artwork

mulberry wood, aniline dye, tung oil
[6" H x 6" diameter]
The wood for this vessel came from the junction of several branches of a mulberry tree, which adds a lot of interest to the piece. There are several fissures where the branches separated. You can see both the heartwood and sapwood in many locations and I preserved some of the bark. I really like how this piece came out.
