This an absolutely beautiful plate in it's own right, but surprisingly, made as functional ware and is maintenance free thanks to the cutting-edge treatment on wood.
This item is also large and sturdy enought to be used as serving platter. Alternatively, simply great to look at as a beautiful object.
Made in Japan
Hand turned from single piece of maple wood
Botanically dyed with pomegranate
Liquid glass finish - front and back
Rimmed in approx 5.0cm width and slightly edged with a great precision.
Beautiful charcoal-graphite colour comes from pomegranate and iron dioxide. It changes its shade and depth at an angle, showing the unique qualities of the grain and curvature of the wood.
The artist is a keen collector of old pewter ware. With this plate, the artist's explored the beauty of aged pewter by using wood.
Treated with liquid glass, which not only makes it food safe and free from oil stains, but also that it will retain its colour for many years and is maintenance free, water resistant, and unlikely to decay.
Liquid glass is a relatively new nano-technology coating formula using exactly the same materials used in glass. ( Read more about liquid glass here)
