Rift Vase by Keith Hatton

The concept is taking the worst traits and way to cut wood, and utilizing it into something beautiful. Rift is cut from a Raw edge of wood, the most undesirable cut, which is then cut on the end grain, the weakest and most probable to warp. This is then bonded to a rubber core (future plans of using polylactic acid core) in order to hold water and allowing water to wash up on the wood to have a blossoming affect when used.
