Large Curly Maple Natural Edge Platter
This platter took second prize in the 2022 Totally Turning Symposium in Saratoga Springs, NY and was chosen for a poetry reading by NorthWinds Fine Art Gallery. Roger Mitchell is a well published poet that is writing a poem about my platter. The event is April 22, 6.00 pm at the Hotel Saranac in Saranac Lake, NY. It is a free event and open to the public.
This platter has a lot of character. The aged maple has many shades of color that enhance the curly figure. Curl is a natural figure that makes the wood look like it has waves of curl in the grain. If that wasn't enough the wood has some natural spalting and I have filled the voids with gold epoxy to top it off. The size of this platter is 17 inches by 4 inches. It is finished with all natural, food safe, and non allergenic walnut oil.
