I was going through some of my cut offs and I had this piece of Maple Burl Cluster. A cluster burl is where more than one aireal burl is growing together. They are normally small but they have some incredibly tight eyes. As you can see it has a natural edge and all the voids are kept. This piece is 14 by 16 inches and is a platter in my fractured platter series. I had thought about doing some translucent laquer color but there was to much charater to enhance this piece. Some things in nature are to perfect to change.
