This was a commissioned piece by one of my best friends to be given as a birthday gift to her “someone special”.
When this was ordered, I searched quite a while for that “perfect piece” that would compliment the image – I think I found it. The grain pattern in the mulberry almost seems to frame the image perfectly.
I was also able to leave the majority of this piece with live edges – bonus!
Mulberry, just like cherry, will oxidize and darken to an almost caramel color in a few months – double bonus!
I had to hold off posting this for a couple of weeks as the recipient views my projects from time to time. Today is his birthday and I was just informed that he loved his gift!
Dimensions are around 14” high by 10” wide and around 1/2” thick.
As usual, my treatment of choice consists of a soak in lemon oil and a backing of thick felt.
Happy Birthday Jazz!
