!!!! This piece was featured in the New York Times Sunday Styles Section on 12/9/12!!! My half birch Yule log is a versatile piece. This attractive log is just the right size for your mantel, table top or coffee table. All of my birch pieces are made of plaster cast in molds made from real birch logs. The mold picks up all of the detail and little irregularities of the original log. They are then hand painted to give them a look so realistic you'll notice that people will want to touch them to see if they are real. Check out the special features below: • Cast in plaster and hand painted • Unique hollow feature allows you to insert your own seasonal floral. • Accepts 3 standard tea light candles, included • Length: 12 in x Width: 5.5 in x Height: 3.0 in.
