Pyrography on wood plaque

After the artist's own original photograph

American pyrographer Rita Ferrara took up pyrography after she got her zither some years ago. She decided that her treasured zither would look beautiful and special if she would woodburn a design on it, so she bought her pyro tool to learn, started practicing, and loved it. She tried combining pyrography with her decorative art work and now works on plaques and functional wood items, primarily boxes, in single media as well as combinations of pyrography, chip carving, and color. Her zither? Well, she finally decided it was ill advised to touch it because it already had a finish on it.
