Sugar Maple Palettes for Beam Paintstones

Sugar Maple Palettes carefully gathered from Anong Beam's family sugar bush, where they make maple syrup.

Sized to fit 4 Beam Paints' standard Paintstones. (7/8")

These small pieces of wood come from the magical Inaatig in our Ojibwe language or Acer saccharum in Latin, finally Sugar Maple in English. Every spring we tap hundreds of these trees when the nights are freezing but the day is above zero and the sun is shining. ItÕs a time of getting together, hard work, and family. It doesnÕt hurt the tree and this same acreage we live on has been caretaken by our families since and before the treaties of our area were signed. It takes 4 litres of sap to make one litre of maple syrup!

Part of caring for the trees is carefully removing some dry branches, these palettes are made from those offcuts. I have always loved the strength and feeling of them, like a living stone.
