Dyed Curly Maple Plate.
This 12" plate can either go on the wall or on a table. It can be used to serve dry food such as crackers, but should not be used for wet items, to protect the finish. It is created as an Object d'Art primarily to be viewed for its beauty more than its functionality.
This is a 16X14" Piece of Curly Bird's Eye Maple which was turned and dyed. The wood has unusually prominent figure and is not found very often. It is meant to be an artistic piece to be viewed but could serve dry food or hold dry objects. It can go on the wall, the mantle or the table. The wavy figure and coloring make me think of a rain storm in the summer.
