This is a beautiful threaded vessel made out of Rainbow Poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera) with a Asian Satinwood Burl (Lagerstroemia calyculata) threaded cap.
Tulip poplar is the state tree of Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. It is the tallest native tree of Eastern US. The wood is generally a non-described off white,but the heartwood might develop color tints from the various mineral aborbed from the soil. When this happen, we have rainbow poplar. I wonder what type of chemistries were at work to create such a colorful natural stains in this species. This threaded vessel has a simple profile to showcase all the colors of this rainbow. I've added Abalone Inlays for an even more special shimmering effect. Asian Satinwood is often highly figured, specially with curly, fiddleback patterns that shimmer in 3D, like the Abalone .It wasn't called Satinwood for nothing, The lid securely screws in to keep your belongings secure. This will look good anywhere you place it in your home!
