Ikebana Turned From Gold Mallee Burl Cap

Wood Vase

Created by Eric Reeves
This large and heavy ickebana is turned from is turned from an Australian burl cap, a growth frequently found on the trunks of various species of eucalyptus. Gold Mallee burl is one of the most prized of these rare woods, both for its fabulous color and its dramatic figure. This specimen is particularly beautiful and finely figured. Botanically, it is a close cousin of Red Mallee Burl.

The wood is extremely hard, as dense as any wood that can be turned. The natural edges of this burl cap have been preserved in fashioning the burl cap. Every burl is different, and the singularity of any given turning or creation is a function of this variability in dimension, color, and figure. The water-holding pin barrel is particularly capacious and is very firmly set in the burl wood.
