I am working on an interesting vase made of a birch burl particularly on making a hole for a glass insert for the vase. A burl is a tree growth cased by an injury, virus, fungus or frost. Burls have beautiful textures and are highly sought. There are three more vases from various burls to work on so I will share the others that seem to be even more interesting and more beautiful. In return I have got two burls, one from a birch and the other from a lime tree. So I am excited to see what will come out of them.
