It was first turned from top to bottom to get the basic form, then the spout was drilled and hollowed, then it was turned to the other axis to hollow the body and insert the medallions. The medallions were turned and textured from Paduak and then fitted to the main body. Lastly the cap was turned from paduak and fitted to the Ebony spout.Then lots and lots of sanding, and 6 coats of clear laquer and as you can see the contrast between the woods makes for a stunning piece. All in all the total time to create this wonderful piece was just under 40 hours. The texture and copper gilding on the wood is. Of decorated pieces I have seen in museums.
