I continue to make and sell these platters, using mostly local CA woods (sycamore, ash, olive, black walnut). I inlay them with anything I can get my hands on. I go for contrasting colors, especially in the blue and green color range. Enjoy!

The inlay is a mix of crushed stome (apatite, malachite, chrysocolla, turquoise), some pigment, and resin (polyester or epoxy)
