Hand Turned Wooden Vase, PETRA, Handmade from Cherry Wood

Hand Turned Wooden Vase, PETRA, Handmade from Cherry Wood

  • Handmade
  • Materials: cherry wood, glass vase, high friction polish

Petra is a cherry wood flower vase that was hand turned on my lathe from wood responsibly sourced in nearby Fayette County, Kentucky. Portions of the vase were left "rough" as the wood was found, giving the vessel a rustic feel which adds to the uniqueness of this piece. This vase comes with a glass insert and has a leather base to protect your surface. The leather came from the offcuts, which otherwise would be considered waste, of a leather and tack shop here in Bourbon County.

The vase measures 5-3/8" tall and 3-3/4" at its widest point. The opening is approximately 1" wide and 4" deep. The wood has been finished with high friction polish which enhances its natural color.

A little about me....
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I try to use mostly found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky, incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.

What a beautiful bowl! The care it took in chosing the wood and turning the bowl is very apparent. And the handwritten note was a great personal touch! I have this bowl in a special spot in my entryway so I see it every time I come home.

Arrived safely and quickly. The beautiful woodworking is so much more apparent in person. It's balanced and lightweight in profile and from the top. I bought it for myself when I finally get out of perpetual renting and into my first home as a future housewarming gift (couldn't resist). Thank you!
