LV-3029 Staghorn Sumac  Wood Turned Vessel, Hollow Form, Vase, Weed Pot

LV-3029 Staghorn Sumac Wood Turned Vessel, Hollow Form, Vase, Weed Pot

$ 250.00

This is a unique wood turned vessel made out of Staghorn Sumac (Rhus typhina).  An ornamental tree native to Eastern North America, Staghorn Sumac is another wood (beside Lignum Vita, Verawood and just a few others) that possesess a greenish color, and a lot more.  Looking at this vessel, I can see many shades of green... and yellow... and red...  The wood is porous so I had to spend a long time stabilizing and sanding before it became this shimmering rainbow.  Staghorn sumac is a source of a natural dye and the wood also fluorest under black light!  What a fun and unique thing!  

Dimension (largest diameter x height):  4" x 3-1/2"
