Fire work


This small wooden charity shop find has been transformed by working it with a blowtorch!

In addition to the fragility of the piece, and its shape echoing that of a tree trunk.  I really like the silver sheen in places which comes from the heat reacting with the chemicals in the varnish, I think. The copper wire is used to signify holding or healing.

This piece was feature by Axisweb earlier in March when I was one of their four artists of the week.
