The olivewood in this piece is from South Australia.
The timber is about 150 + years old. 'Young' olive wood can be quite plain, and it takes many years for the timber to acquire this spectacular grain. I feel very privileged to work with this special piece, when you consider the tree was probably planted around the time of Burke and Wills' expedition and the Ballarat gold rush. It was found and saved by a lovely man in S.A. who has been quite dedicated to saving beautiful old trees and timber before the developers move in.
I have inlaid dried pink rose buds, dried white jasmine flowers and little pressed daisies into the resin layer. I've really felt privileged to work with this timber, it's absolutely stunning.
To finish the board, I have attached an antique copper handle made in Italy.
The dimensions of this board are 20cmW x 32cmL (incl handle) x 2.3cmH. The resin river is 2.5cmW.
