A marsh plant near and dear to my heart, this piece features the native emergent broadleaf cattail (Typha latifolia) hand burned on a live edge cherry board. The board measures 27.5” x 7” (at widest) x ~1”.
Each board piece is carefully hand selected from wood suppliers local to the Hamilton/Burlington area, followed by hand sanding, sketching and burning with my Razertip SS D10 burner.
Every piece is finished with several coats of food safe 100% tung oil, allowing you to use it as a serving board if you're hoping for a more functional piece of art, as well as to hang on the wall or prop on a mantel or shelf.
If used for food, do not submerge in water to clean - simply use a damp to dry cloth to wipe the board, and prop up to air dry.
If hanging/displaying, keep out of direct sunlight as this may cause the artwork to fade over time.
The board may need to be re-oiled every 5-7 years, depending on use/placement in the home.
