Luce Center Label

The soft yellows and creams of buckeye wood complement the simple form of this piece. Allen Ritzman likes classical silhouettes and chooses not to embellish his pieces with heavy carving. Although this vase is only eight inches tall, the rounded form gives it the appearance of weight and solidity.
