Hand pyrography on live end maple burl. Sculptural piece.
Maple burls are naturally swirled with beautiful designs. When approaching a piece of wood like this, Dani first sands the wood (a LOT) As she sands, she tries to find the hidden images already in the wood. Finally, she highlights these images with her pyrography work. She found a dragon and its favourite tree in this particular piece.
