"China Blue" Single urn

China Blue China Blue Phil Irons

Coloured Quilted Poplar with a Holly threaded lid. This piece came from a log I saw it in a woodyard that I use was 1m in diameter and 3m long, I noticed the undulations on the surface where the bark had been pulled off. (see the image below)  Poplar isn't a timber I would normally use due to it's blandness but I thought I would try a piece, when I started to turn it I saw the heavy quilting and knew it would respond well to colouring but I wasn't expecting it to be as spectacular as it turned out.  I used two lightfast dyes, Royal Blue and Light Blue to enhance the amazing figure and finished it with four coats of waterborne lacquer before burnishing it to a high gloss.
