Mineral Inlay Hummingbird Platter #394

Piece #394 – Steamed Beech,¬†Calcite inlay – 11.5″ by 2″

 

This steamed beech platter features a hummingbird drinking from a Hibiscus flower. The bird and flower  inlay are about 1/4 inch deep. Minerals used were calcite, fushite, howlite and obsidian. The outside border is optical calcite with the inlay cut all the way through the wood so that light passes through the optical calcite. I have invested about 100 hours of my time in the piece.
