Over about 20 years I gradually developed the art of making 'stick' bowls and vases. In the early to mid 2000's I had a number of clients who wanted these types of pieces, especially the vases. With the financial crisis at that time these orders dried up. In the mid-teens my Todgham bowls became popular. The spalted maple ones were the most sought after. I stopped making the vases.
In 2021 a client wanted a 'stick' vase. I hadn't made one in almost a decade. I decided to make 4 and give the client a choice. The three stained red pine stick vases I am offering in the Ojibway Art Show are the remaining pieces.

Just a note: technically, this piece isn't a vase. Vases are usually taller than the width of their diameter. It is only out by a bit more than 1/4 inch!
