A forever token of nature and man’s design hand, the Maple Wood Vase from maple burl. To successfully work with maple burl is to know wood as few do. Each burl is unique in every sense of the word. They form as growths on the Big Leaf Maple tree. A trauma, virus, insect, injury to the maple – begins the process that takes decades upon decades of growth before harvesting. Our award-winning master craftsman excels in knowing how to extract nature’s utterly unique design, turning the burl into a piece of artwork. A gem cutter of wood, he recognizes the potential. Deformed but fabulous is the golden grain that eventually becomes the treasure of skill, art and nature. The Maple Wood Vase is a creation resulting from the master craftsman’s all- knowing eye and hand. Our gorgeous vase is offered in three sizes to find its way to an eye-catching spot on a shelf, table or desk. For those who know and love wood, holding one of these fine pieces in your hand, feeling its satin surface and getting lost in its myriad turns of grain is a meditation. Give as a gift to a loved friend, a keepsake to be passed down and always remembered.
