Pyrography

In order to keep my skills sharp and experimenting, I'm doing a daily challenge with breakfast that changes every month.
You'll find them recorded on my Instagram page, where you can see the latest challenge.
Most challenges involve taking no more than 25 minutes on the day's contribution.

June 2020

Using a piece of rescued old wood donated by the lovely Sarah Hannis, I spent the month of June building up and then burning a design featuring Celtic knot-work patterns and figure drawing studies. In a month where lockdown is wearing long, protests against racism is all over the news feeds and it looks likely that things are going to take a while to rebuild, it felt right to have characters tangled in a knot, building up the patience to untangle what they can over many moons and days.
