  4. Harold Bowern liked Jim O'Donnell's media Double Vision "SPINE" in the album Vases

    The 4th vase in my "Double Vision" series is made of African Zebrawood and figured maple. It was made with tapered outer edges of the outer silhouette to emphasize the inner delicate vase profile. "SPINE" stands 8.5" tall and is finished with danish oil.

  5. Harold Bowern liked Jim O'Donnell's media "Double Vision Breathe" in the album Vases

    This the 3rd vase in my original "Double Vision" series was made from curly maple and African mahogany. This one-of-a-kind vase is the only wood vase in the world that "breathes" while placed on a rotating platform. It was created to show a "breathing" inner vase silhouette. It stands 11 7/8 tall and is finished with danish oil.

  7. Harold Bowern liked Jim O'Donnell's media "DV II" in the album Vases

    The second in my original Double Vision series was made of African Mahogany and curly maple. It stands 2/3 scale of the original (8.75 x 4.5"). It was constructed this size in order to fit neatly on a smaller display area/shelf. Finished with Danish oil.
