Made from the crotch of a Silver Maple tree. The crotch is where two branches split off from the main trunk, and the result is a “feather” pattern and other wild grain. The crotch figure on this piece goes all the way through, and can be seen from the top or bottom. There was a small bark inclusion on the rim that was filled with crushed turquoise stone.
Finished with a food safe Danish Oil finish, the serving tray has a wide base to provide stability.
