Plates are a whole thing for me. Love me some plates. Especially these plates because they benefit from so many different techniques.
When I painted them I had home office, holiday and functionality in mind. With the shift to working from home I feel that minimalism and multi-function in home accessories is important . It helps prevent homelife from looking like worklife. Who wants an office looking office space in their home?
I turned these plates on the lathe and then burn them with a torch to achieve the shou-sugi-ban effect. The last tehnique is pointilism style painting. The timeless snowflake pattern is appropriate for both holiday and winter decorating.
Originally the wood was part of a very heavy table someone had made and discarded. It looked as if they were going for a farm house style dinning table, totally didn't achieve that look, so they wanted rid of it. The look was more of a workbench that had been nicely stained and too heavily shellaced. It was good quality wood and I used every piece of it for one thing or another.
