A dramatic MINI Charcuterie Board (cheese board) in Zebrawood with inset Hemlock Forest Fire growth rings. Fine Art for Food.
This is an example of the board available to purchase. One side of the Hemlock tree burned significantly more than the other. Perhaps it was hollow, horizontal, already fallen, or the wind influenced the burn. The ring section snapped naturally in drying, and I segmented it further into this semi fossil image.
The 395+ hectare arson was fire started August 4, 2016, and burned in the very dry humus layer, burning the roots out from under the trees. Burning down, sometimes over 2 feet, made it extremely difficult to fight and contain, and was out of control for some time. The area is now stark, eerie, and feels injured. Yet the moss and ferns, the forest fire morels, and the fungi are slowly reviving it.
Conceived as Art, the backs are keyhole notched for wall hanging, landscape or portrait. The piece can be enjoyed every day.
We developed these boards to achieve a gift price point of $95.00 msrp. MINI sized, 6"x 10", they are perfect for gift giving and receiving. Each board comes in its own flocked vinyl presentation clutch.
