Pyracantha Wood Decorative Keepsake

I've been using Pyracantha Wood for my Pyrography Art for a number of years now, and have produced keepsakes featuring all sorts of creatures. Pyracantha is my favourite wood for many reasons - it enables fine detail, has a wonderful colour and polishes to a nice sheen. But it is difficult to come by reasonable sized pieces, as this a shrub, rather than a tree. Many of my keepsakes are small, measuring perhaps 4-6 cm. Occasionally a larger piece come along, such as that shown here with my latest design 'Enchantment of Albion'.
  As far as I know I seem to be the only person using Pyracantha Wood for Pyrography!
