About "Leopard in the Mist"

In the shifting early morning mist, this leopard appeared, at times, to almost become one with the dead tree as he slumbered peacefully. It is this apparent union between leopard and tree which inspired me to create this work.

The wood, used in the creation of this artwork, has been steam-treated, spray fumigated with a broad spectrum insecticide, and sealed with a clear polyurethane varnish.

What is Pyrography?
Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

Pyrography or pyrogravure is the free handed art of decorating wood or other materials with burn marks resulting from the controlled application of a heated object such as a poker. It is also known as pokerwork or wood burning.
The term means "writing with fire", from the Greek pur (fire) and graphos (writing). It can be practiced using specialized modern pyrography tools, or using a metal implement heated in a fire, or even sunlight concentrated with a magnifying lens. "Pyrography dates from the 17th century and reached its highest standard in the 19th century. In its crude form it is pokerwork.
A large range of tones and shades can be achieved. Varying the type of tip used, the temperature, or the way the iron is applied to the material all create different effects. After the design is burned in, wooden objects are often coloured. Light-coloured hardwoods such as sycamore, basswood, beech and birch are most commonly used, as their fine grain is not obtrusive. However, other woods, such as maple, pine or oak, are also used. Pyrography is also applied to leather items, using the same hot-iron technique. Leather lends itself to bold designs, and also allows very subtle shading to be achieved.
Traditional pyrography can be performed using any heated metal implement. Modern pyrography machines exist, such as solid-point burners which are similar in design to a soldering iron. They have a solid brass tip which is heated by an electrical element, and operate at a fixed temperature.
