This is a small vessel that was turned from sycamore, I then used a power carver to enhance the surface. Wood bleach was used to lighten the exterior of the vessel. I made the lid from spalted bradford pear. The spalting is a fungus the enters the wet wood and eats the sugars leaving the wood with streaks and colors. I did not bleach the interior so there would be some contract between the interior and the exterior and showing that it is indeed made from wood. The vessel is 6 1/2" wide and 4 1/2" tall.
