The sycamore bowl was beautifully turned by Tony Witham then pyrographed and painted by his wife Christine. The begonia leaf decoration continues around the edge and down the outside surface. The leaves were textured with pyrography before painting so they feel like real leaves. The full size image is 79k.


platter

This is a sycamore platter turned by Tony and decorated by Christine. It is 8" diameter.


large vase

This hollow vessel is 12" high, turned from green ash by Tony. It was gripped in the Coil Chuck. The rim and foot were textured with the "spoon" pyrography point. The sides were pyrographed and then coloured with dye.
Tony was the woodturner and his wife Christine was a talented artist. They are sadly no longer with us.
