Spalted Maple Hollow form Vase


Custom handmade decorative vase for your home or office. This vase is made from a single piece of reclaimed spalted maple wood. The wood acquires it's beautiful, intricate patterns of streaking and coloration via a natural process called spalting which is caused by rot and fungi. The wood is cut, processed, dried and turned before this natural spalting process makes the wood totally unusable.

Measures about 9"h X 4-1/2"w. Finished with a few coats of wipe on poly and buffed to a nice sheen. It will look fantastic in any room of your house or at the office.

I am visually impaired and handcrafted this one of a kind piece on my lathe.

DO NOT use live flowers and water! Can be used with dried or artificial arrangements or just a stand a lone piece of decorative art.

Care instructions: Wipe dust off with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in water to clean. Do not use chemical cleaners.

The natural variations and character of wood may be evident by the presence of different coloring in grain, unique grain patterns, sap streaks or pockets, knots, etc. Every attempt is made to get the measurements exact as described/pictured; however, due to each piece being handmade there may be slight variations in the measurements of each piece and there will be natural variations in the wood grains. Its’ uniqueness makes it a great conversation piece. Your friends and family will be amazed when they see it.

The woods that I use are local trees damaged by disease or storms and were destined for the landfill. On some occasions I do use exotic woods and those woods are sourced from certified suppliers who legally and eco-friendly harvested woods.

Color in pictures may vary from true color due to studio lighting conditions for photos and your monitor settings.
