These Colored Pencil Rim Vases feature a band of color pencils that are visual from both the top and sides of the vases. I cut a recess in the top rim and glue in the pencils. The rim then receives a dome of clear resin epoxy which highlights the colors. Secondary operations include pyrography which is a wood burning technique. A red hot wire is placed into the wood and a brand is made. I also use an airbrush to add color to the vases and finally a protective finish.
The colored pencils add so much character and truly make these a one of a kind wood vases. This style of using colored pencils are my signature pieces. The vases are in high demand with galleries that represent my work. I put a lot of energy into creating my pieces and when an item is purchased I feel that a piece of me is being invited into a home. This is very special.

All of the items on my website are handmade by me in my studio in Montvale, New Jersey, USA. Every vase has my signature on the base.
Care for Wood Bowls
- Keep out of direct sunlight and minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
- Do not wash with water and use only a damp cloth
- Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster. I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.
