Artist's description:

A beautiful and impressive rustic wall art octopus, created with traditional freehand pyrography techniques.
Pyrography is an old art form whereby the surface cells of wood are burned with hot wire to produce a permanent colouration of the wood without the need for paint or varnishes.
The octopus has been precisely produced by burning thousands of dots by hand, resulting in a unique and challenging art piece, suited to the equally challenging oak medium.
The oak piece has been carefully selected for its beautiful grain, and waney edging, and has undergone intensive preparations to enable successful burning. Oak is a notoriously difficult medium for pyrography due to it’s density and unruly grain, making this piece a very unique edition for art collectors and those with an appreciation of natural materials.
Burned free hand, and signed, this is a one-off piece which boasts an organic style, setting it aside from commercially accessible laser wood art practices.
This wall art octopus hangs from wire attached from two inset clasps on the rear of the piece for flush wall mounting.
