This piece is hand turned on a wood lathe. I first turn the wood then inlay the elements. I chip inlay the stones that are then hand ground to give a smooth surface. I then spray the vessel with multiple coats of lacquer.
The main body is red gum burl form Australia. The lid is gaboon ebony and spalted tamarind. The inlay is turquoise.
Dimensions: 3" diameter by 7" High
