Insence holder from Douglas fir, colored
Handturned insence holder made from douglas fir with a holder from brass in the center.
I handturned this insence holder from locally sourced douglas fir (recycled wood from a former woodworker). After turning I brushed the piece and colored it stone like with the so called dry brush painting technique where many layers of color are put on the piece. I also made a self turned brass insert for the holder part and centered it inside. The holder can take both very thin and a bit larger insence sticks.
The small bowl can be also just used for decoration or as a twigpot for holding very thin dry flowers. (see picture).
