April - Bowl
Above - Peter Brown brought his latest work of art for us to admire - a sensory pyrographed scene. The wood preparation and pyrography took a couple of days, and the electronics about a week to get right with the help of a friend. Sensors behind the wood activate a variety of sounds associated with the images when you run your hand over the individual creatures.
