Pyrography wall art of Stephensons' "Rocket".
A very early locomotive design, this 0-2-2 engine was built for the infamous Rainhill Trials held by the Liverpool and Manchester Railway in 1829. She was built by Robert Stephenson in 1829 at his companys' Forth Street Works in Newcastle upon Tyne. I drew this artwork from a photograph I took of the National Railway Museum, York working replica of "Rocket" on a visit in 2016. It is drawn on a section of Acacia log, with the steel piston rods and brass pipework and the boiler bands picked out in colour paint.
I have set the drawing on the wood so that it follows the growth-rings as much as possible. The wood has a small natural split, and I have kept the tree-bark in its natural state.
I have signed it with my initials in the lower right of the artwork, it is sealed and finished with 4 coats of satin varnish on both sides and comes with a 'd' ring wall hanger.
All pyrographs should be kept out of direct sunlight, as the sun will bleach the wood.
