Completed in the summer of 2009, this hand stained and screened printed reclaimed wholefoods catering tray features an original illustration of a small blue bird.
The wood panel was originally used to serve sandwiches, but was salvaged and lovingly stained this deep rust brown and red first by using IKEA's Behandla red stain then darkened using MiniWax PolyStain Pine. After 4 coats and some skill with the some masking tape the panel was ready for printing. The bird print was silk screen printed onto the surface in very light blue. This piece is currently available in my shop.
