Bamboo turning is a traditional handcraft art that has been passed down for hundreds of years. Harvested bamboo is soaked for a month to soften then shaped by skillful hands into vases. Fully formed and dried vases are then hand painted into the beautiful products for your homes. Due to the handmade nature of these vases, no two vases are the same and they are made to be collectable pieces of art. These vases are not watertight and not made for holding live plants. They are uniquely beautiful centerpieces for your home or office.
