NONA LEE is an oak hand turned wood vase that I made from wood responsibly sourced in Fayette County, Kentucky.

I left portions of the vase “rough” as I found the wood. Additionally, inner bark and worm holes are visible on the front of the vase. Combined, these characteristics give this vessel an authentic, rustic feel.

I include a glass insert with this vase. Further, I attached leather to the base to protect the surface on which it sits. For the leather, I used offcuts, which would otherwise be considered waste. I get these offcuts from a leather & tack shop right here in Bourbon County, Kentucky. The shop is perhaps best known for handcrafting the halters of a number of Derby horses.

This turned wood vase measures 8-3/8″ tall and 3-1/2″ at its widest point. The glass vase insert is 7-1/2″ tall and 1-1/2″ wide. I finished the wood with high friction polish which enhances its natural color. And last but not least, I include care instructions with the purchase of this piece.

A little about me….
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I primarily use found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky. It’s my hope that incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece serves as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree. Learn more about me and my shop here.

Creekview Woodshop donates a portion of every sale to Green Forests Work, a nonprofit dedicated to re-establishing healthy and productive forests on formerly mined lands in Appalachia.
