Kwila and Silver Beech Vase

Listing image #867476
(Kwila and Silver Beech segmented vase, 2029)

This segmented vase will delight anyone who appreciates handmade and original design from a New Zealand artist. Its robust design is inspired by the linear shapes in museum photos of Art Deco decorative vases. It is 180mm tall and 200mm at its widest point, and a one-of-a-kind item.

Our woods are from sustainable forestry here on the West Coast, and the odd demolition salvage to re-purpose vintage timber.

In traditional wood turning, the blank (the wood piece mounted on the lathe for turning) is a single piece of wood. Size, grain, colours, and character of the wood will usually determine what it can be made into. In segmented woodturning the blank is made of many small pieces of wood glued together into a chosen pattern. The height, width and angle of each small piece of wood required – down to a tenth of a degree – must be calculated precisely. Each piece is then cut and hand sanded for creation of the blank. Segmented woodturning means size, patterns and woods are limited only by imagination, skill, and patience.

Care
Keep out of direct sunlight and and away from excessive heat. A gentle wipe with a furniture oilcloth will remove any dust or fingerprints. For anything more, use a damp cloth. Do not fill with water or immerse in water.
