Wedding plate

I was asked to make this plate to commemorate a recent wedding. The groom is blind and it was hoped that he would be able to feel the letters and the design. The centre design was taken from a book by the master chipcarver, wayne Barton.

Absolutely beautiful.

Wonderfully personal and thoughtful.

And quite creative. As a visually impaired guy (nowhere NEAR blind, though), I think it’s just /that much more/ special.

Nice!

You do beautiful work Colin. I like the background dye, it really goes well with the wood and makes the carving stand out.

Very nice, Colin! That pattern is one of my favorites. Out of curisoity, how did you get the dark stain on the outer bead of the plate? It really adds to the beauty.

Fantastic idea. They should have asked you to try to carve in braille? I bet that would have been really difficult.

Have your say...
