Day 137: Light my fire
Another small Olive hollow form today with some pyrography. The wood had so much going on that I thought too much burning would be distracting so I did just a bit around the top and a little around the base.
Top view showing the burning around the rim and the pair I did yesterday.
Bottom view with signature. The 1/10 on the bigger piece is January 2010, not 1 of 10.
Now for the bad news, It took me 3 tries to get one piece done today. The piece on the lower left got a little thin and then cracked because of vibration. I cut through the side of the piece on the top. Such is life.
One more project tonight. I burned this grecian inspired design on the peppermill I made last week. It's not perfect but it's not bad for freehand.
