Green Oak

Having recently sold the vibrant little Blue and red Vase, I found a nice piece of Oak in the log pile that I decided to have a go at colouring and make a replacement.  It didn't turn out quite as I imagined, but then that is about par for the course when it comes to using colour with wood. Still, I do like the end result. How about you?

This was a very tricky subject to photograph too, the way the open grain has picked up the colour is very striking in the hand, but the light and reflections made that hard to capture well, plus it has a very glossy finish which required direct rather than the diffuse light of the first two images to bring out, all in all though I think the shots do the item justice.
