A couple of Honduran Rosewood burl brushes that have just been added to my site at www.eliterazor.com.
Honduran Rosewood burl is found in Belize (British Honduras) and in river areas throughout Central America. The heartwood varies from brown to deep purple varying from light to dark in color. The sapwood is a contrasting light or cream blonde color. Since Honduran Rosewood turns well, it is used often for knife handles and piano legs. Other uses include percussion bars of xylophones, and fingerboards for banjos, guitars and mandolins. It is also used in fine furniture and cabinets, with highly figured logs sliced for decorative veneers and inlay work.
I have been trying out some new shapes and colors and these are the first two to make it to completion. Both have a beautiful shimmer when the light hits them that is hard to properly capture in these pictures. They have just been listed on my site at www.eliterazor.com.
I have completed a couple of new brushes that have just been listed on my site at www.eliterazor.com. The first is the other half of the Pastel Dream piece that was shown in my previous post. The other two are experimental pieces where I was trying some new color combinations and are priced accordingly.
