This impeccable vase was crafted from multihued woods including cherry, walnut and cedar. The progression of each piece Mr. Hayes creates begins at harvest from the woods of Appalachia, to processing in his own sawmill, to the drying of individual pieces, to producing functionally beautiful forms with a hand-turned lathe. The pieces are food safe. The artist’s initial inspiration stemmed from his wife’s collection of baskets, which moved him to provide his family with storage and serving pieces that were unique sentimental heirlooms.
