About "Zebra Crossing"

When working with wood there is never a blank canvas. The natural growth of the timber often produces defects and the grain can twist and turn in unexpected ways. It is a joy when these can be incorporated into my work, even if a little imagination must be used.
Here a line of zebra are trekking to a waterhole under a blazing African sun. But above the sun, black lines caused by fungus in the wood (called spalting), suggest clouds. Figuring of the grain, caused when a branch begins to fork, suggests rain on the horizon. A serendipitous combination.

About Roy

Roy Gibbs

Originally from Ipswich in the UK, I emigrated in 1979, working for a British company, and remained here in this beautiful, exciting country ever since. I live on the edge of the Moot valley with a vista of the Magaliesberg mountains and a garden full of birds. Karee, Hookthorn and Pink Ivory trees grow around the house, Stamvrug and Milkwood on the hillslopes behind us.
I have been woodturning for 25 years and in the last few years I have been incorporating pyrography into my work to the extent that my turning is becoming incorporated into my pyrography. It delights me that I can combine my love of wildlife with working with wood and that I can see so many avenues to explore in the future. Finding ways to combine these 2 skills into desirable art work is a very fulfilling occupation. I hope you enjoy what you see and I welcome any comments, complimentary or not.
