In keeping with the Out of the Woods theme, “Enchanted Forest” is a classically-shaped boxelder hollow form adorned with a fantastical pyrographic illustration. Boxelder is also known as elf maple; an inspiration for the design, which evokes the elvish woods of mythology.

This hollow form was turned by Mike and embellished by his sister-in-law, Georgianne Jackofsky, who has a background in graphic design. The intricate, time-consuming drawing and shading is done in freehand pyrography. In working together, they are open to the unexpected, but seek a balance between the beauty of the wood, the shape of the form, and the surface designs.
