Koi Fishbowl Pyrograph (Woodburning)

Very Fishy!

Japanese koi pyrograph, burned into and around the outside of a hand wood turned whitebeam bowl.

(Wood turned bowl by  Joe laird Woodturning Studios)

This was my first attempt at a curved surface piece. It's very tricky burning on a curved surface, and trying to match the inside fish with the outside fish to make it look like a fishbowl. Also varnishing evenly on a curved surface is fun! :sarcasm:

I like the idea that the Koi are burned into the inside of the lid, it is a nice finishing touch to a beautiful piece

Thanks so much for the lovely comments and faves as always Delice. :hug:

There is no lid.  The koi are actually burned directly onto the inside of the bowl (and the outside).

Really nice work. What wood did you use ?

Thank you very much. It's whitebeam. It's my first time using it, but it is beautiful to work with, especially for pyrograpyhy (woodburning) as it doesn't have a strong grain.
