Box Elder Burl with Horses *PIC*

Molly Winton
>I oriented this natural edge to look as if an artifact had been broken, and then burned in the horse design. The broken illusion is known to be effective with 5 year olds. My daughter came up to me and said, "OH MOM, how did this get broken!" The burning is done with a stippling technique. The interior has also been charred after leaving it unfinished/sanded and adding a few additional turning marks. It is approx. 7"x6", and finished with Danish Oil.
