Fan and Chisel Box

Journal Entry: Sun May 10, 2015, 2:51 PM






Hand made frame and fan and pyrograph by snazzie-designz

Custom hand made frame and fan by :iconaldwarke: aldwarke with a ukiyo-e
pyrograph (wood burning) by me.
Inspired by the Toshi Yoshida woodblock print "Spring".
"Hakubai ni Mau" translates as "Flying around the Plum Tree".

Handmade Chisel Box Decorated With Pyrography by snazzie-designz
Japanese themed pyrographs burned into this beautifully hand made
chisel box made by aldwarke.

The chisels are marvellous Kirshcen brand chisels. Kirschen means
"cherries" in German, so I decided to do a cherry blossom themed box
to match. The cherry blossom designs are inspired by Japanese ukiyo-e
woodblock prints. I continued the Japanese theme on the underside
with a Japanese dragon.

The Covenant

The latest WellSnazzie collaboration, and this is a big one!
             
It all began with this magical slice of pine wood, from a fallen tree
in the sacred site of Monasterboice, Ireland. After 2 years of looking
at it sitting in my kitchen waiting for just the right piece of inspiration
to do justice to this very special slice of wood, it finally hit me.
As many of you know aldwarke and I have collaborated on a
number of projects now (links below) and usually my talented
collaborator makes marvelous wooden pieces (frames, boxes etc) and I
have the great joy of decorating them with pyrography (wood burning).
This collaboration was slightly different. What many people may not
realise is that not only is aldwarke a master craftsman, but is also
a beautiful writer and has a gallery full of delightful an
The Covenant Artwork 
The artwork is all my own original design inspired by the story
(though the couple were inspired by some royalty free clip art).
 
The sun is on one side, and the moon on the other, and the leaves of
the rowan tree range from autumnal oranges and yellows to summer
and spring greens to try and encapsulate the timelessness of the story.
 
I especially like that the apple tree spirit was not purposefully drawn in
by me, but appeared of his own accord.  The text "shoot" has a little
shoot of a rowan tree growing out of it.
    
The couple in the tree is an homage to our previous Triptych
collaboration.
