Pyrography Skull Rose

As we have been accepted to collaborate with Modify watches, we are burning designs exclusively for this project, and will be blogging the process of each piece. The final wood burned designs and prints will be available to buy in the near future from our website and Etsy store. For now though, they will only be available as a watch face design.


From idea to sketch to final burn.

Using a printer to copy and reduce the size of our drawing, we place a piece of graphite paper on the plywood. The main lines are then traced, transferring them straight onto the wood.

The design is mostly shading as you can see in our short video at the bottom of this post.

Having visited both the catacombs in Paris and also the Bone church in Kutna Hora, i have found a new deepened interest in bones, mainly skulls. Whilst looking at them they leave me wondering what story they have left untold. Where did they come from, did they travel, what was their occupation, did they live a full life with happiness and laughter. How did they meet their maker? Was it old age or was life stolen from them too soon. The human body tells many things once time and nature have stripped it bare. This and imagination makes them simply fascinating to me. 


So with my new found love of skulls i decided to use it for a design, not wanting it to be a dark art piece, the obvious choice to me was to have a beautiful rose blossoming up through the skull. A life and death, re-purposed soul and nature kind of feel.


After all, there is always life after death.....

    Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. I believe that you could do with a few % to force the message house a bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog. A fantastic read. I'll definitely be back.

    Whenever i was a baby, babysitting appeared to be a low-paying, under-age occupation, but not less than we won something right until we ended up being 16 and we're able to go out to get a food market or eaterie job plus really start earning profits. Now, we're also inflating teenager’s pay for babysitting plus yard deliver the results.
