This finely hand turned wood bud vase is by the noted designer woodworker George Biersdorf of Cooksville, Maryland. Mr. Biersdorf, a professional woodworker since 1973, uses only hardwoods that are native to the U.S., most of which he harvests and dries himself. He does not use endangered species and all his finishes are natural. Since he has no assistants or employees, each of his studio creations is his alone. His current focus is on creating spectacular, unusual lamps and lampshades. Our final photo is of George Biersdorf with some of his lighting, courtesy of his website http://www.georgebiersdorf.com/
This bud vase is in excellent condition with no chips, no cracks and the beautifully-grained cherry wood is unfaded and just glows. It’s 5 inches tall, has a 2 3/4 inch diameter base and weighs about 10 ounces. Burned into the wood bottom is the signature and date: G Biersdorf 1979. As he often did, Mr. Biersdorf attached a paper label that identifies the wood as cherry and the original price as $6.00 (!). This is the perfect size vase to tuck on a shelf or table, alone or in a grouping.
