A sweet standing vessel made from two natural colored Red Sealing Wax Palm sheaths that have been stitched together with Raffia Palm fiber. Elemental is named after the four natural elements represented in the piece by the natural colors of the sheath and layered handmade papers. You can choose which represent Earth, Fire, Air and Water to you. For Shelley, the earth is represented by the brown band of paper at the bottom, the water is above that, the fire is the Red Sealing Wax palm sheath, and the air is the top blue band. The top rim looks almost like a ruffle, which is the natural edge of the palm sheath.
Completed with a hand rubbed polyurethane finish, it has room for a good size bud vase inside, that you can add if desired.
Like all of Shelley's creations, this is a one of a kind piece that cannot be duplicated; it is literally a piece of Hawaiʻi Island. Each sheath is sustainably harvested from natural fallen leaves from beautiful, giant palm trees (about 10 different varieties). A wonderful way to remember your island experience or bring the warmth of the tropics into everyday life. #takehawaiihome
