Customer had the plate and said she loved it but didn't have an idea what to do with it so after consultation as to the colours in the room it was to go, she gave me free rein to create as I saw fit.
I inlaid 3 deep handmade ceramic sculpted bowls with metal roses, offset these with a tan ceramic sculpted bowl and flower to complement the colour of the room, inlaid metal leaves and wound a flexible vine throughout. The plate is wired to hang on the wall.

Custom 2" thick wormy maple side table
This cabinet was purchased in-store, however, only the center top tiled portion opened. Customer wanted to use this cabinet as a kitchen island so the cabinet was modified by cutting out all the tiled areas and creating drop-down doors, creating a false front at the bottom of the large tiled door between bottom shelf and bottom portion of door, replacing the wooden shelves, staining the cabinet and shelves to maintain the look of the original cabinet (black cherry) and finishing with a wax surface. The island is now accessible from the kitchen work side (the open side) as well as the tiled section that a person would see when entering her kitchen. The last image is the island installed in her kitchen which is currently under renovations.
