Tall vase series

17" D x 32 1/2" tall

Box elder, dyed

This piece is made from plain straight grained wood, so it needed something special to spark it up.  I dyed it red, then when it dried I dyed it black.  Very gentle sanding with very fine sandpaper cut thru the black enough to reveal the grain of the wood.  From a distance the color appears to be solid black, but up close the details of the wood grain become apparent.  Late 2000s.
