Hollow Form Vessel from Utah Juniper with Malachite, Red Coral, and Coal inlay, 10.5” diameter x 8.125” tall with 2.125” opening, buffed CA finish.  This is one of my favorite pieces.  I collected the wood on the Uncompahgre Plateau from a truly ancient tree that was likely over a thousand years old.  It was dead having fallen over probably over 100 years ago.  Much of the main trunk (almost 4 foot diameter) and several of the major root branches remained.  This piece came from one of the major root branches.  Due to the extreme weathering this piece offered a lot of opportunities for inlay work.
