Description

Designed and made by Colin Schleeh in Montreal, QC, this walnut Wood Vase has evolved from a series he has been exploring for over 25 years.  Striving to use the least amount of material to make the most venerable piece possible, he tried to avoid ornamentation, refining the forms to their most simple, yet dynamic state.  He hopes to have created an object that resonates with the wonder he feels every day, working with these fantastic materials.

The technique he has developed to make the walls of the vessels so thin, yet strong and flexible, involves gluing together solid sheets of wood of varying thickness. While the interiors of the vessels are coated with an exothermic resin, the exteriors are treated with tung oils and a catalyzed lacquer.  For care of this piece, never use oil, wax, or any kind of polish, just a lightly dampened cloth if there are smudges or fingerprints on the vessel.  Please keep it out of direct sunlight, as the UV radiation can change the colors of the wood, sometimes profoundly. 

Colin Schleeh was born in Montreal, QC.  Inspired by the organic qualities of wood, Schleeh creates his pieces out of wood, concrete, and resin.
