Here are some more works of pyrography that my lady has done (she has been busy…). Like her past works I worked up the frames for them, and getting them varnished. ;-) The burnings are on Basswood and the all frames are of Walnut or Peruvian Walnut.

The patterns for pictures 1 through 4 are out of…
Wood Spirits and Green Men: A Design Sourcebook for Woodcarvers and Other Artists by Lora S. Irish.

The pattern for picture 5 are out of…
Great Book of Woodburning: Pyrography Techniques, Patterns & Projects for All Skill Levels by Lora S. Irish.

The pattern for picture 6 are out of…
Pyrography Workbook: A complete Guide to the Art of Woodburning by Sue Walters

This is a unique art form to me. It seems your wife has mastered it.
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you everyone for the kind words (she is smiling).

Pat, I have put a gnomon (6” long) in some of the picture to help gauge the size. In order, pictures one through six, the sizes are roughly… 8×12, 8×6, 7×6, 12×11, 8×8, 5×11
