Wood Palette

Inspired by Mother Natures very own abstract painting! Eucalyptus deglupta commonly known as the rainbow eucalyptus, Mindanao gum, or rainbow gum is found naturally in the Northern Hemisphere in the rain forests of Mindanao. Technicolor bark, the color of the rainbow, make this tree the most beautiful tree in the world. Layers of outer bark are shed revealing a bright green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to display shades of green, blue, purple, orange, pink and finally maroon tones right before exfoliation occurs. The bark will never have the same color pattern twice and is constantly changing, making it a living work of art.
