Beauty in Decay

Based on a sphere, this piece represents a globe; a planet in decay, yet still beautiful.

By burning away more of the softer wood, the pyrography adds texture. Using a two-part rust finish paint, the beauty of the decaying globe is mimicked by the rust affect.

A 6 inch sphere hollowed and then carved using various grinding burrs and cutters. Pyrography was used for the texture, then finished with a two part rust finish paint.
