The Chinese Elm wood used in this piece was a trimming from a tree on South U Street in Lompoc, California. My daughter and her boys were driving through town one day and saw some tree trimmers. She quickly rushed home to inform me of the "gold" that lay waiting. As I approached the workers they were quickly feeding this amazing golden Chinese Elm wood into the chipper shredder to become mulch. I quickly parked and asked if I could scavenge a few pieces from their trimmings pile. They happily granted my request. So the little piece of wood was saved from pending doom to create this wood heart vase just for you. A small glass tube has been inserted in the top of the vase to hold cut of dried flowers.
It measures approximately 5" across by 4 1/2" tall.
