I'm not a huge fan of wood as a home accessory unless it's Scandinavian furniture from the Fifties, but this vase is so beautiful, it's hard to resist. It's made by designer Seth Rolland, a wood worker. He offers a couple of examples of vases but this is by far my favorite. He also makes linear looking chairs and tables with glass tops. His woods of choice seems to be North American hardwoods, such as naturally harvested ash lumber or dead wood found on a friend's farm. This guy really likes working with timber!
