The Lost Forest

With deep grooves and soaring vertical lines, these handsome chestnut wood vases echo the natural beauty and presence of a tree in a forest. Handmade by Walter Jacobus, these 100% reclaimed downed tree vases have been weathered and shaped by wind, rain and the elements, giving them each a warm and organic look. These can be used as an impressive centerpiece or placed on the floor for a new way to display flowers. Handmade in Grassy Creek, North Carolina. Available in small or large; intended to be used as a bud vase.

The chestnut tree was once dominant on the East coast before widespread blight killed a large majority of them in the early part of the century.

Barbara Greenberg and Walter Jacobus founded their carving business in 1976. For more than 30 years, they've been crafting wooden fine art in the northwestern mountains of North Carolina.

American Chestnut wood, recycled from old split rail fences, has been a major influence in the products created by Barbara and Walter since 1978.

The majestic, giant American Chestnut trees once covered a quarter of the eastern woodlands, before Chestnut blight killed all but a few mature trees. The blight, first discovered in New York City in 1904, imported from Asia, wiped out nearly all of these giant trees by 1950.
