ARBUTUS WOOD MAGNETIC VASE
A beautifully turned Arbutus Wood vase hand made on Vancouver Island by Wray Parsons. Each vase contains a glass phial so that water may safely be added to keep flowers fresh. The vase has strong magnets to attach to a metal surface, such as a fridge or filing cabinet. Some of the original bark has been left on to give a very pleasing finish.
Height ~ 3 1/2 inches.
Arbutus (Madrona) is prized for its crooked beauty, colorful bark, fragrant white flowers and red berries. This magnificent broadleaf evergreen tree grows along the B.C. West Coast, often on rocky bluffs overlooking the sea. Arbutus is the sacred tree of Knowledge to the Salish First Nation.
