These are Megan's initial process experiments. She tried multiple variations of burning and distorting wood to find just the right propety to continue on with.

That property ended up being burning wood lath that had been exposed to dish soap applied with a sponge. As you can see, the sponge technique created a beautiful array of texture and shading based on the amount of soap, texture of sponge, and colour of wood. Once the final technique was decided upon, it was time to go full scale.

This is Megan's final curtain panel. How lovely and aged it looks with fine seams of light bursting through the naturally occuring slits and knots. The leopard pattern burned into the unique grains emphasizes the unique beauty of this project.
