Etched and painted with fire and heat, pyrographed gourds have existed for generations-and now modern tools and solid state woodburning systems have made doing fine detail work simpler than ever. Every amply illustrated page and project teaches and inspires, as a parade of fine artists discuss their tools, reveal their techniques, and above all go through each step of the process. They explain how to pick and prepare a suitable gourd; form delicate lines, spirals, and curves; and work through intricate designs. Among the awe-inspiring projects: a pyrographed Frog gourd, basket, and several pieces of jewelry.
