The brilliant, fascinating, and hyper-specialized production process starts with a whole tree, freshly delivered from the forest, wick and green. The artisans measure, mark, and cut blocks to size, trim, edge, and lathe the plates sized by block. They then smooth, sand, and plane each plate to make it level and even, steam the finished plate to remove sap and close the pores of the wood, and finish each gorgeous bowl by hand-dipping it in a food-safe mineral oil bath. The resulting (perfectly giftable) pieces are heirloom-quality gorgeous, each with a stunning unique tone and grain depending on the life-history of their tree.
Take Care: Never let water stand on a wooden plate for a long period of time and please don't run it through the dishwasher. Hand wash and dry and apply your favorite food-safe wood conditioner when necessary (we swear by Old Mill's All Natural Beeswax and Mineral Oil Wood Polish, available right here at The Foundry).
