Large wooden platter/serving board
Botanically dyed with bayberry bark
Liquid glass finish - inside and out
Hand turned from single piece of maple wood, hand dyed by the artist
Made in Japan
A great center piece, large and flat. Ideal for serving party nibbles or as cheese board.
Rimmed in approx 3.0cm width and slightly edged with a skilled precision.
Beautiful graphite colour comes from bayberry(wax myrtle) bark extract. It changes its shade and depth at an angle, showing the unique qualities of the grain and curvature of the wood.
This item has a small crack on the rim and it was reinforced by the artist with golden brass rivets. It is a traditonal repair technique for wooden ware, adding an attractive feature to this already excellent piece.
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. Liquid silica soaks into the grain of the wood, then vitrifies and protects the wood at the nano-fibre level. It is invisible, so it won't change the appearance of the wood; and bio-degradable.
