Dyed oak plate with FIMO feature ring
An experimental piece, in more than one aspect
I turned a plate from a leftover piece of oak that a friend found in a carpentry workshop dumpster.
I turned two recesses, one in the rim, another round the center of the piece, and it was haded over to a FIMO (polymeric clay) artist, to decorate at her will.
I found the oak & fimo plate somewhat plane, and started to go wild on it.
Some red fabric dye that was left, and some black India ink I “borrowed” from work.
After sealing with shellack, I filled the pores with some black ink to accentuate them (sea close-ups).
The whole thing was finnished with orange shellac.
People who saw this were controversial in what it made them feel. Some liked, other not so much. One outdid nit, saying it reminds him of the melamine plates from the 1970’s…. /-;
