Rustic acacia


This piece is 9" tall and 6" max. dia. Partly hollowed. Acacia is one of those woods that has gorgeous colours and as often as not crazy grain patterns. This on also has some burred parts and loads of bark inclusions giving it plenty of character. A very hard wood that shines to a really high gloss contrasting with the bark and natural textures.
