Aslan Pyrograph

Aslan Box Pyrograph

I was very lucky to get my hands on this beautiful handmade box by Harry Wells. The edges of the lid are hand scalloped with a chisel to reveal a beautiful striped pattern from the ply layers. It reminded me of bite marks, which inspired me to use a lion for the lid decoration.

I’ve always loved the poster for “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” film and I thought it would be perfect for the lid. Also the scalloped edges look like rays of light coming out of Aslan so they seem doubly fitting.

This was also my first time experimenting with blending bottled inks on wood. If the blending is done properly the ink allows for seamless blending as you can see with the background which goes from dark navy, to blue to aquamarine to amber. Unlike paint which masks the wood, hides the grain and hides the burn lines, ink soaks into the wood, enhances the grain and allows the burned shading to come through.

The lid with the wood burning done, before the colour was added.
