My Heart as a Platter

This was turned from Olive Ash that grew in Hainault forest and was a crotch in the tree giving rise to the ripple figuring and the feather in the grain.

I turned this wet so that the piece cupped either side of the center while drying which compliments the heart shape.

The base plate is from the same tree and has been cut so that the base is half Olive and half not.
