After watching a demo on a basket illusion platter late last year, I started gathering stuff to give it a try. I started wondering if anyone had tried doing this on a pen. Bruce Robbins did some basket illusions using his CNC machine. Aside from his work, I have not found where anyone has tried it with burning techniques like used for bowls and platters. Here is my first stab at it. There were a number of challenges in doing this and my pyrography skills need much work. Some of my lines are burned too deeply and most are irregular. I don’t mind some irregularly since woven baskets are uneven. My lines improved as I went along and I think I can do better with more practice. Thoughts? Does this have potential?
