Squid Art Dagger

Recommended Posts

Here's what I've been busy with lately, a little squid and his (her?) lunch.

 

Here are the details: 1 5/8 inch welded cable carbon steel blade, pyrographed and polychromed English boxwood handle with fossil ivory and ebony double inlaid eyes, red silk wrapping, 6 inches overall length.

Thanks for the kind words!

 

Dick, marketing can be everything in the sales world, hence the fancier term. Pyrography has a more "artistic" connotation than wood burning (sounds like craft, not art). Not intending to ignite the art/craft debate. I also use polychrome to mean colored.

Hi Tom,

 

surely if you are careful with your pyrographic paintbrush ( soldering iron :) ) you won't ignite anything. :lol:

 

I will echo the sentiments expressed earlier, I enjoy your juxtaposition of materials too.

 

well I must get back to my metal carving, oops!, I mean polychromatic alloy sculpting. ;)

 

regards, Ford B)
