This is a hollow 10" Diameter hollow form that was turned from Florida Maple that has spalted. Spalting creates septacular colors and figure in wood. Spalting occours when a spalt fungus enters wet wood and eats the sugars in the wood. The wood is not harmed or degraded. The exterior has three coats of Gel Topcoat. The interior is coated with flex epoxy and allows it too be used with water for flowers.
