Myrtle Bud Vase #39

I turned this bud vase from a stash of Myrtle I got from friends in Oregon. This one has a really cool knot right at the top of the neck. It is signed, dated and numbered on the base. The vase is approximately 4-1/2" tall and 2-1/2" in diameter. I burned a unique dentil pattern around the base to add character. I sanded to 600-grit, and hand rubbed it with Danish oil until it glowed. The neck is hollowed and tapered.

Please contact me to inquire.

My bud vases are hand-made from natural wood that is rough-turned green and air dried. I then finish turn the vases, sand and hand finish with Danish oil. Paste wax should be applied periodically to maintain the warm glow of the finish and protect it from the environment. Over time, your vase's color will age and mellow. Natural aging can be reduced by protecting the vase from sunlight.

Please do not place water in the vase or immerse the vase in water.
