Australian Olive wood and blue resin platter. The Olive wood for this platter come from a farm in New South Wales. I made this platter by combining the Olive wood and resin in a mould. Once set, I turned and shaped it on a lathe. I mixed two colours, an electric blue and a dark blue to create this unique colouring for the platter. The blue resin accentuates the light colour of the Olive wood to making it stand out. Australian Olive wood is light in colour and you can clearly see the shades and tones the wood holds. The platter has a resin finish put on it to protect it from spills.
The platter is not dishwasher safe and should be cleaned with warm water only. The coating will protect the wood from most things but do not cut anything on the platter as this will damage or destroy the finish. It is about 38cm in diameter and 3cm deep.
