I took a pyrography class with Cynthia Gibson a couple months back. I enjoyed it immensely. You know the drill: smoke, fire, good friends, good food, and art!
I brought this plate but didn’t get the chance to work on it at the time. I had already designed the repeating pattern, but I hadn’t transferred it to the plate until a couple weeks ago. It took several evenings and lunch hours to get it this far. I’m surprised I didn’t make any more mistakes than I have.
My respect and admiration for Cynthia’s work has grown by leaps and bounds during this project. Her fine control and delicate lines leave no doubt as to her skill and talent. If you haven’t seen her work, you NEED to go look it up.
10” beech plate, turned on my Jet 1642. The pyrography was applied using an Everglades Carving Supplies unit – a Patriot Pro 2000. I’ll need to run the pyro down into the v-grooves, clean up a few overheated spots, and probably put another bit on the backside, as well as sign the thing, then finish it up.

Taking suggestions for naming this piece.

Thanks for the compliments folks. I’ll work on this some more today, and eventually put some finish on it. I’ll post more pix when I do.
