Thread: Big Walnut Vase

    Big Walnut Vase

    Here is my second segmented piece. Walnut (with a lot of sapwood). The shoulder ring is curly soft maple and the detail is orange wood. 23" tall 13" dia. Finished with DO then poly. I still need to rub it out to take down the gloss a bit. 496 segments I reckon. Haven't a clue what I'm going to do with it. No safe place from dogs and kids to display it in our house, and I doub't it would sell at the craft shows I ply. My super long hollowing tool sure came in handy. Thanks for looking, Barry

    That is a beauty. I really like the wood and form. You might be surprised to see that it would indeed sell.

    That's sweet, Barry. Very nice piece. I'm with Bernie...slap a price on it and see who bites. You might be surprised.

    Beautiful. Must be very impressive in person, as large as it is. I'll betcha it is saleable, put a large enough price on it to attract the high end folks. Give it an arty name and then double that price.

    Great looking vase Barry! Love the form and size! I would think your vase would work as a magnet at a show - pulling people in to take a look! I'm sure it would sell - just make sure the price is high enough to comp for all the time you put into it! Best of luck!

    Wow! That is nice. The size that you took on for segmentation is inspiring.

    Very very nice. Even thinking about doing a small segmented vessel makes me start sweatin and breakin out in chills. I don't have the time to have patients for something like that even on a small scale.

    Thanks for the comments, all. As some suggested, I think I'll use it as a display at my booth that will hopefully draw in shoppers, put the price I think it's worth on it, and see what happens.
