The Ghost Vessel, with its darkened hollow and an abstract, softly triangular shape, has the feel of a primordial being frozen mid-motion. It's small size, however, might also bring to mind a quirky little ghost!
Carved from maple, this work of art also functions as a vase, with a darkened hollow ready to display dried stems or anything else you want to spotlight. The possibilities for ikebana with this little ghost could be quite interesting.
Due to the handmade nature of the piece and the material, each piece may have small variations in color or shape. This image is a representation of the style. Please contact us if you would like us to provide images of the piece currently available.
As the vessel is made of wood, it should not be filled with water.
Ashley Martin, Ash Woodworking Co.
Made in Asheville, NC
Maple, approx. 5" high.
Ashley Martin is a self-taught craftsman and sculptor. His work stems from his childhood in rural southwestern PA, where summers were spent whittling in the woods and working with his father as a cabinetmaker and furniture builder. While formally trained in Aviation and Meteorology at Ohio University, Ashley began Ash Woodworking Co. in 2016 to pursue his creative endeavors.
Each piece is crafted utilizing hand tools and drawing on traditional techniques. Abstracted from forms in nature, his work reflects an exploration of the environment and the forces which shape our surroundings.

Not Just Buying Well, But Also Buying Kinder
We strive to support ethical and sustainable production by being mindful of our sourcing decisions, which can mean, for example, choosing products that use sustainable and natural materials, are made by artisans and craftspeople who live in places with worker protections, or uses a process that minimizes waste. We may not save the world with these measures, but we feel that at the very least we can choose to minimize further harm.
We also love supporting independent designers and craftspeople, and working with smaller, lesser-known brands. You'll find handmade pieces in our collection where we know who made it!
Transactions are handled with bank-grade security.
