Burned and Dyed Ash

These ash hollowforms were burned with a torch. The torch charred the early wood (large pores) before burning the late wood (more solid places). I then used red dye to color them.

Hollow forms

I’ve been enjoying making hollow forms recently.  This is just a sampling of some of the recent ones.

Another cottonwood form.  I like how layering various colors of dye brings out the figure in cottonwood.IMG_4783.jpg

Aspen hollowform

This hollowform really shows off some nice Aspen grain figure.

Small Aspen Hollowform

This is a small hollowform – just 2.5″ diameter and 3″ tall.  It is Aspen, with a cap (attached, not a lid) of ebonized Walnut.
