A magnificent and large art charcuterie board. The warm Cherry board measures about 47" x 22" 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, so I 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 lifting it off the wall at a party, then artfully presenting tapas, or a grazing feast for 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.
