    Larry, they are attached to a stoneware type urn, and are sanded glass smooth, The wood looked like Aspen to me.

    looks to be one of those examples of doing what will sell and not what one likes to make maybe..

    Very cool. I've see similar pieces done on a lathe with the wood rounds cast into acrylic resin.

    Do you know if these were domestically made, or were they imported?

    Very cool. I'd much rather see things like this made by local artists than by some kids in an Indonesian sweat shop.
