A magnificent and large art charcuterie board. This beautiful Zebrawood board measures about 36" x 11" x 1" and growth ring trunk sections of Mulberry are embedded, surreally floating in a lily pad composition. The mulberry tree was blocking the light coming into my shop, one of many on my property grown from seeds dropped by birds. I debated for months, but eventually cut it down. I cut the trunk into growth ring slices, drying the trunk sections where they split open like lily pads, demanding this composition. I feel the Mulberry is living on here.
This is a functional charcuterie board, intended to be enjoyed in service. Imagine artfully presented tapas, a slab of smoked salmon, or a grazing feast brought out to your friends.
The board is to be wipe washed with soap and water (never submerging), and then reoiled (olive oil is fine) to protect it. The back is drilled for hanging portrait or landscape, and it returns to the wall, as art.
