Thank you for your interest in my small business! This vase is proudly now 100% MADE IN THE USA I happily support other small businesses as well. The bark comes from Maine/Vermont/Wisconsin areas of the country and is mostly white/yellow birch. I will be sending a picture of your vase prior to shipping to make sure you love it :)
The perfect gift for most of life's major events - birthdays, Christmas, engagements, anniversaries and best of all a wedding gift! This beautiful birch wood vase measures 7.5 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide. This is a glass cylinder vase hand wrapped in birch bark (some glue may be visible on the inside/top/bottom of the vase) I want to glue it well so it lasts forever! Each vase is carefully steamed, glued and wood burned by me to your specifications. Since it's glass it's completely waterproof! You don't have to worry about leaks like with zinc wrapped birch vases.
This is burned by hand so it will NOT be perfect, like a machine laser engraver..This is not the look I wanted for this product as I wanted it to be rustic and look like a engraving would on the actual tree.
Please be careful when unwrapping your vase birch bark is naturally flaky and part of the engraving can come off if it is rubbed. This the nature of real bark, I can not control how each piece burns since each one is unique.
Please input initials and date (if desired.
Since this is a natural product each vase is unique and differs slightly in color, texture and pattern. Some pieces will be flaky and some are flat ALL BARK IS FLAKY to some extent. I will place the heart in the smoothest part of the birch bark to ensure it stands out. As this is real birch tree bark there may be some cracks in the birch bark from being pulled off the tree and or cut to size. As each piece of birch bark is unique some vases will be glued down better than others due to the variations in the thickness/rigidity of the bark.
This posting is for the vase only! This vase could be used for an elegant/rustic wedding centerpiece or even around the house as a centerpiece for the dining room or coffee table. The vase would also make a nice bridal shower/wedding/anniversary gift.
