Holzfurhaus Giveaway at Blushing Hostess

I am very pleased to welcome Holzfurhaus to the Blushing giveaway sponsor group. Proprietor Mark Wilding's skill and tasteful hand in decorative woodwork and finishes is remarkable and singular.

Holzfurhaus has generously created this decorative vessel specifically for Blushing's readership holiday giveaway's and I am humbled by the beauty in this piece. Please leave us a comment below telling us which piece at Holzfurhaus you most enjoyed to be entered in the giveaway to win this piece.



Regal Triumph
retail value $ 65.00
3 ½” Diameter 6 ½” High

Regal Triumph is a wood turned hollow vessel made from walnut. It is topped off with an ebonized walnut finial. The ebonizing process is done with a solution of vinegar and rust applied to the walnut. There is a chemical reaction which turns the walnut dark. This is an ornamental piece not intended for food or liquid. It is finished in an old Louise XIV process called French Polish (shellac) where the finish is applied while still on the lathe. This allows the finished to be burnished into the wood while turning. Then end result is a natural sheen that highlights the wood without making it look and feel like plastic.

I LOVE the Purple in the "Half Light", and also the simplicity of the Memosa Platter! However, this giveaway would be wonderful too!

Oh Please! Count me in. What a wonderful Etsy shop. I particularly enjoyed the rustic candleholders. They would be fabulous over at the farm. Surely hope that I win as I am looking across the room at the PERFECT spot for the beautiful vessel being given away.

I love the Spalted Oak Vessel. The giveaway piece is most fabulous though. I love it and my fingers are crossed!

Bonnie said...

Oh wow... absolutely beautiful. I am always so amazed at the talent of people on Etsy. What a gorgeous store & thank you for the intro - I've saved them in my favorite stores & will be shopping there soon! So many pieces to choose from, I really had a tough time narrowing it down but I'd probably choose (for me) either the spalted oak container or the rustic candle holders. GORGEOUS!! Thank you to Holzfurhaus & you for the giveaway.

They are all really lovely. The regal triumph might be my favorite but I am also drawn to the "elemental slide" walnut bowl. Beautiful.

I loved all the bowls. I really love their shapes and how you can see the grain of the wood. So beautiful! The finial is also gorgeous!

My favorite is the Regal Triumph - it's gorgeous - but the Elevated Oak Hollow Vessel is just as beautiful.

Oh Boy...love the regal triumph! All of the work is just pristine and amazing. I also love the large memosa platter...where you can actually see the tree rings and the age of he tree. Gorgeous!
