A one-of-a-kind museum-quality masterpiece, handcrafted by master wood turner Dr. Craig Mason. The mahogany tree had outgrown its yard in Kaimuki. This exquisite hollow form features a burned and textured collar and stopper. Dr. Mason also sheathed a cowry shell in the stopper with 24K gold leaf.
Dr. Mason has been working with wood for more than 32 years, and uses only reclaimed wood...he never purchases wood or cuts down trees.
