  • Something to make the pyros drool?

    I chopped a small sycamore tree down last week and have been playing with shapes and design ideas with it. The wood is almost pure white with a hint of grain. As yet these are unpolished, bare wood. I am thinking of having a go at dying as sycamore is supposedly really good for that and can produce some really amazing effects. Certainly the stark ,look of these is crying out for embellishment.
    I haven't measured them yet but they are about 6" tall and the egg is probably about 4" long. Need to work out how to use that one, possibly a suitable piece of driftwood or root?


    He seems to like them


    Suggestions welcome.

        Wow, they look like ceramic! Love the first one and love their starkness. IMO fab as is, no need for embellishment or dying (although v interested to see results of both embellishment and dying!!! )

            They're beautiful and as Aviya said they look gorgeous as they are. i love the first one, the shape is beautiful. As soon as I saw the egg one I thought of one of those little bubbling pebble fountains with that as the centrepiece with water trickling out

              I second Si's comment... all that lovely blank surface... mmmm!

              I can see a woodland scene all round, or maybe an oval with flowers, or, of ourse, a nice dragon! Everything's better with dragons on...
