Bring some warmth into your decor with this Red Elm vase by artist Ron Gurgol. The root and epoxy resin lid, in shades of yellow and deep amber, is reminiscent of lava, which gives the vessel its title. Gurgol uses found wood, turning so-called imperfections into unexpected design elements in his work- seen here with the natural formation on the side of this piece! The vase seat includes pressed and dyed melon & glitter. Dimensions: 6.5"H x 4"W.


Ron Gurgol (Salem, IN) first became interested in the art of wood turning in high school, but did not have the opportunity to work on his craft until 2018 after purchasing a refurbished lathe to practice on. Gurgol has been turning ever since, creating pieces from dead or discard trees. He also incorporates resin and often collaborates with his longtime partner and fellow KMAC artist, Wende Cudmore, to make each piece even more unique.
