Redwood Flower Vase

This handsome chunk of California redwood was given to me by Rich Spellenberg when I visited Las Cruces, New Mexico, in 2014. Rich also gave me some of his crushed turquoise and detailed instructions on inlaying it in a turning.

After considerable self-education, I managed to turn this vase, with its collar of turquoise inlay. It’s 8″ wide and 4″ high.
