Story Behind the Art:
Rootwork items are carved from a species of Chinese Fir called Shan Mu, which grows abundantly in the mountains of Central China. Rootwork raw materials come from stumps left by logging operations, the removal of which allows faster re-growth of newly planted seedlings. Each gnarled stump is then transformed by skilled artisans into the gorgeous pieces.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

First off, it was delivered quicker than expected, so that was good, I was afraid it would be damaged because I'm sure the UPS guy threw the box over the fence, (there's no FRAGILE on it anywhere), but to my relief, it was perfectly fine. Smell was strong, but it was pleasant. My husband, who's a finish carpenter and really knows his 'woods' was even impressed. I got a nice and knotty one. =) It's heavier than expected, I intended it for a pot shelf, but it's probably too heavy for it. I'm getting another one. You wont be disappointed.Read More
I was somewhat disappointed in the urn. I loved the concept and the urn is interesting, but not what I had hoped . It sort of comes down to luck whether you get a urn with the gnarly, interesting roots or one pretty plain. Ours was not only plain but with three "flat" spots on the urn where the wood wasn't as big as the turning diameter. My wife loves it but as a wood worker I am disappointed.Read More
I ordered this for a sister's birthday present. It came with a very thin matte finish, hardly noticeable. There were other loose tree waste ends within the openings, along with dust - it wasn't cleaned well. I cleared all the waste, twigs, etc. out of the holes and applied a wood finish to it. That took some time. No one with an artistic bent would be happy with it, untouched. I guess it is rather a unique gift, but it sure needed work to be acceptable. Be prepared if you order it.Read More
I bought this as a gift and the couple that recieved it, absolutely loved the vase. It is large and smells wonderful. I would like one too !Read More
I expected individual differences in a piece of this sort, however what I got was very different from the photo. Instead of being rounded and full as you go up the urn (with expected groves and burrs etc.) it was concave on two sides. It was unattractive and obviously was made of a poorer quality piece of wood. This one went back immediately.Read More
This urn is lovely. I have all three sizes. They all have such character! It is definitely a conversation piece. And that they are done by hand is a plus. I would recommend this to a friend.Read More
Have bought both the large and the medium of these and make lamps out of them. Where ever they are put people are intrigued. Usually though when we buy the two together it seems one of them has really great decoration and the other is o.k. They still make wonderful lamps and are so easy to convert.Read More
Beautiful art work type piece. As soon as someone walks in they are drawn to it. I keep the little card that comes with it below it to explain its origin. It was worth the extra time (usu orders arrive within 48 hrs or less when I use Overstock) to get this time. I am extremely pleased and the cost is extremely reasonable considering the size and how heavy this piece is. It is has a hollow space which is about 12 inches deep and about 3inches in circumference is you wanted to add anything(like artificial flowers) but there was no need to do this because of its beauty.Read More

Thank you for shopping with us scapegoat7483. The volume varies from piece to piece because they are hand carved. I cannot easily provide that information. The urn is not intended to be used to hold water or anything else other than dried flowers or the like. Have a great day.
