A great example of a basket weave illusion vase. This one has been created from Norway Maple, a salvaged piece of wood from a nearby town where I live.
This is an original design created by the artist at 623 Woodworks. The basket weave illusion process is an exact and time consuming process but produces outstanding pieces when completed. You can learn more about this process on this website under the about tab or the blog tab.
The coloring has been done with India Ink and the entire vessel has been coated with shellac for protection. The vessel is hollowed to about 1/4" wall thickness.
