Cherry Twist

cherryserver2    Dennis has used the open twist for  candlesticks in the past, but this new piece is the first time he has created a tall serving vessel with a twisted base.  To increase the strength of the twist, he has lengthened it somewhat.  It also tapers quite elegantly as it raises the shallow bowl upward.  The base adds stability, reflecting the ogee curve of the underside of the bowl.

The entire piece is turned from American Cherry.  As it ages, it will darken to the familar dark red cherry tones.  The finish is penetrating oil, with a hand-rubbed wax.

Overall height  10.5″  x  11″ diameter
