Bird in the Blazing Sun
Platter: 9 1/4 in. x 9 1/4 in. x 1 1/2 in.
Including Stand: 9 1/4 in. x 9 1/4 in. x 7 in.
The turned part of
this piece is hard maple and FULL of figure. There is a splash of ambrosia that looks like a bird of prey in flight. The base
was recovered from a disastrous shipping event. It started as a stunning Victorian card tray. The top was damaged beyond
repair in shipping, so I parted it off and used it to support this dazzling piece of wood. One of my favorite features of
base is parrot on movable swing.
The wood is finished with kukui nut oil and micro-crystalline "Renaissance"
