Stunning decorative vase of box elder wood created by award winning wood artist, Cliff Lounsbury. This is perfect for any home or office. Each is a one of a kind, of course. The distinctive red streaks in the wood are caused by the sap of the box elder tree after bugs and other insects bore into the relatively soft wood to lay their eggs. The colors are just magnificent. Hard to beat Mother Nature. The sap was used by various Native American tribes to make sugar and candy. These make perfect gifts for a special person.
