Vase with a Shawl

A thin layer of natural edged Maple Burl (0.030" thick) has been fit to a Bubinga vase with a thin layer of black epoxy (0.006" thick) between. The three layers are cut through with an ornamental lathe. The top insert is ebony.

      I like it very much. I think the ornamentation is just right. Not too much, not too little.

      A beautiful piece, and I agree with John: to me it seems just the right amount . . . of everything!

      Excellent work Bill, particularly with the epoxy. That's no easy task gluing up a part like that and not getting the epoxy all over the bubinga!
