Claro Walnut Platter

1 in stock

A gently sloped platter/bowl made of a richly nuanced slab of claro walnut, raised by three narrow carved feet. Small fissures are filled with malachite/epoxy. The finish is slow drying, food quality walnut oil, which keeps a natural glow, while sometimes being absorbed unevenly as the wood grain changes direction. The richness of the wood inspired a design that will stand on its own, or highlight colorful objects such as clementines or grapes.
