Pyrography - Titled "HANDLE WITH CARE"
This original pyro piece is based on my pen and ink drawing called "Handle with Care". It was a beautiful photo taken by a really great photographer called Scott Leslie, and I will always appreciate him letting me draw it.
Every wood slab I work with is different, the way I shape and carve the wood is specific to each piece. It truely is a unique type of artwork.
This wood used in this pyrography / engraving is from a solid one inch thick cherry slab. I have shaped the wood and treated the edges to look like a live edge slab all around. There is just over 5 hours of solid engraving work, followed by hours of burning in the details. Once I am happy with the final result the wood is sealed front and back. The backs of solid slab artworks like this have been hollowed out to make the wood lighter for hanging on standard walls. A lot of love and care and midnight hours have gone into creating this piece of art.
