Holly Cone Vessel with Marble Inset 10 inches
A beautifully twisted, turned and coloured cone vase with a marble inset by Wayne Anaka of Victoria B.C. The wood is Holly and Wayne has skillfully added a rich palette of colour with a special dye.
Holly when turned wet will thinly twist and then warps when placed in a microwave oven for 1 minute. Holly is naturally a warm creamy white, so like a canvas, will take colour very well. In some cases where a knot existed a carefully chosen marble is firmly set in its place. The colours, veneers and marbles give these pieces their unique, one of a kind originality. The oil and wax finish give satin appearance and a long lasting, durable finish.
