Handcrafted and hand carved on a wood lathe. This chalice was made from wood that was raised and harvested in Pennsylvania. I created this chalice with a live edge on the bottom. This means the bark was left on the wood. The wood is beautiful with unique markings. Along with the markings I have no temples. So that means each piece is unique and no two pieces will ever look the same. Every piece is a one of kind. It was finished with a friction polish. It has a nice sheen to it, a softer luster. It not completely natural nor does it have a high gloss finish. It is not meant to be used as a cup. It is purely decorative.
