Spalted Birch tall Turned Wood Vessel - 413-035
Beautiful as a centerpiece, this Birch turned wood vessel has outstanding color and shape. Spalting and turquoise set the dramatic detailing. Copper accent along the top adds a warm look. Authentic Turquoise inlay in the natural cracks of the wood.Spalted wood is in highly prized and collected, as a work of mother nature’s graphic art. Spalting is caused by certain fungi growing in wood–primarily hardwoods such as maple, birch, and beech but also Pine and Aspen. The darker coloration, prominent dark brown-black lines and textures, occur during the decaying process which is known as spalting. Once the wood is dried, as all our turned wood artworks are, it is stable and no longer in the decay process. These works of art will last for generations and stay just as beautiful as they are now.
