Black painted pine vase with glass test tube. This was one of my experimental pieces. Before I started turning expensive bits of wood, I wanted to see how the final design would look - so I turned a couple out of pine and then painted them black. It's not an 'exhibition' piece, but it serves a purpose of holding water in the glass test tube and will hold various greenery or flowers. The test tube protrudes about 55mm from the top of the wood. Just enough height to give a feeling of suspension. Any flower or greenery would look great in this vase and you can use the glass tube - or not. It looks terrific used as a bud vase as well. Timber height: 220mm Glass test tube provided: 25mm x 150mm Weight including packaging: @410g. All pieces are turned by myself in my workshop in Melbourne, Australia. Any further queries or request for more photos welcome. You will notice that my prices vary quite a lot. That is because I try to base the pricing on a number of factors including; availability of wood, size of log/wood, scarcity of wood, ease of turning, ease of sanding and finishing products required. I also take into account whether or not the piece has been turned on the lathe or made by hand, and whether there are any complicated angles involved. Every extra step takes a bit more time. Thankyou for looking.
