This segmented vessel was made out of wine barrel wood. The wood is oak and the dark colorations are the stains from the red wine. The outside was finished by first using red wine to create the pinkish hue, then a high gloss polyacrylic finish was added. The inside was finished with food-safe Odie's Oil. This vessel is 12" tall and roughly 7" at its widest. Both charming and rustic, can be used in many ways in any room.
