This vase form has been turned from a gorgeous block of Claro Walnut, a distinctive sub-species of the common Walnut [Juglans nigra] we typically see in furniture. Claro Walnut—of which this is a superb example—is typically much more highly figured, with a beautiful, richly colored wood that works well with other woods and by itself. The throat of this vase has been turned narrow enough to allow for an upright display of dried grasses or other dry materials. This is belied by the wide flange at the top of the vase.

About the artist

Eric has been turning wood professionally for over 25 years, with a continually-evolving aesthetic and range of technical skills. His work has been featured in some of the finest art and craft galleries in the country. He regularly exhibits in juried shows including CraftBoston. His newest work features many turnings from two extraordinary woods: Buckeye Burl and Australian Burl caps, with their eye-catching natural edges. He has also begun creating mobiles turned from Buckeye spheroids—exceedingly time-consuming to make, but yielding fascinating woodturning in motion. His finishes are a source of special pride, and after sealing woods that require it, his finish is a mixture of beeswax and carnauba wax, mixed in a very gentle solvent. The result is a lustrous but fully transparent finish, soft and pleasing to the touch. ...Read MoreRead Less
