Spalted Beech - Faggio fiorito


Another way to get spalted wood is pay a visit where woods are sold  for fireplace.
They usually leave logs in the field gettin rain, in contact with the ground, that helps in developed some spalted...one can easily see by looking at the head of the trunks, the less exposed to the light...some changing colors or some black lines...

then i hollow the vase, and then i turned over the vase again and using some clothes to not leave any sign of chuck inside the vase, i have defined the continuous of the vessel. removing the chuck grip, finishing it by hand with paper...
