SPENCER STALEY TORCHES HIS WORK
Yesterday, we caught Spencer adding his own personal touch to his later milled sculpture. He decided to go over the piece with a propane torch, adding another dimension to the color & form. Here are a few photos of him at work.
This is an ancient technique called "shou-sugi-ban". In Japan, this was used to naturally protect the cedar from insects, fire and moisture.
