Petra is a cherry hand turned wooden vase that I made from wood responsibly sourced in nearby Fayette County, Kentucky. I intentionally left portions of the vase “rough” as the wood was found. This gives the vessel a rustic feel and adds to the uniqueness of this piece.
This vase comes with a glass insert and has a leather base to protect your surface. The leather is from offcuts, which otherwise would be considered waste, of a leather and tack shop in Bourbon County.
The vase measures 5-3/8″ tall and 3-3/4″ at its widest point. The opening is approximately 1″ wide and 4″ deep. I finished the wood with high friction polish which enhances its natural color.
Finally, included with the purchase of this piece are care instructions.

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.
