Carrying on the theme

Hi all it has been ages since I posted in the forum. This piece I have just finished and is carrying on my interest in various Japanese philosophies/subject. it is 160 mm dia x around 120 mm high. Sat on a burr oak base. Textured and aged with verdigris wax. Comments welcome.

      I like it, all the elements meld nicely into the whole.

      You've got a real sense of Japanese aesthetics - the still green bamboo leaves reminders that life is fleeting.

      The shape, surface pattern and color - all fitting a piece done centuries ago, unearthed recently - and the evidence of its journey through time left untouched. Again - reminders of then and now - the skills and knowledge of the maker inspiring others decades or centuries later.

      You've taken that inspiration - and created a piece that may inspire another - a decade or a century in the future. Another Just So piece - I'm learning to expect from you.

      This is stunning. Can you tell me more about the verdigris wax and what the process is. The color is beautiful
