Item Description

Truly, a work of art!  This beautifully crafted vase is made of segmented Hawaiian Koa, Maple and Ebony wood with hand-burned artwork of a Phoenix and a Dragon, thus the title: "Yin & Yang".  All of Gregg's wood turnings are one-of-a-kind with no two alike. Like a sculptor, he uses form, shape and color to create an art object that can become the finishing touch to a well decorated home of office anywhere in the world.  Laminated wood turnings have been created for many years, but few turners have used this old craft technique to turn it into such a fine art form. In studying the designs of the Orient, the Grecians, Egyptians, Persians, Romans, American Indians and Hawaiians, Gregg has shown that good design has a lasting quality of its own. His use of primarily Hawaiian hardwoods combines many of these ancient designs with the beautiful woods of our Hawaiian islands. 

This piece of art measures approximately 17.5" high x 9" in diameter.
