This is a shallow dish in beech wood,measuring 16cm by 30cm , 2cm deep. It has a design of wild roses and bees burnt into the wood. There is a quotation from Abraham Lincoln around the edge - "We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses". The leaves extend over the edge of the dish at one corner. Some watercolour has been added to the berries, flowers and bees, then sealed with hemp oil, with a little sweet orange oil too. The warm colours and roses against the dark background gives a vintage appearance that I hope, sits well with the quotation. The underside is plain apart from my signature and '2017'.
This dish is food safe and can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
I'm moving back to Wales in a few weeks time and my new home has woods and wild roses. When I came across the Abraham Lincoln quote, I immediately thought of those wild roses, now turning to rose-hips. I like the idea of turning things around, looking at them from a different angle and finding the positive. I included bees in my design because I like the spiky, challenging side of nature as much as beautiful flowers! Adding a hint of colour in the design has given the dish a warm, vintage appearance I hadn't expected. It looks like something my grandmother might have owned.
