Gotland Pyrography Plate
This pyrography plate by Paula Cruz Art is based on a fragment of a picture stone found in Gotland, Sweden.
The stones on Gotland were created between the 5th and 12th Century and although some still remain in situe, others have been moved and are on display at the Historical Museum of Gotland.
Material & Make
The use of fire to manipulate natural materials is one of the most ancient forms of artistry. Pyrography has been discovered on artefacts globally such as bone, wood, leather, and even stone.
Each piece is uniquely one of a kind, having been hand worked by the artisan to compliment the dimension of the design and respect the natural grain of the wood.
This piece has been finished with a clear varnish.
