All these pieces are Pyrography on vegetable tanned cow or buffalo hide leather.
Marsha used only vegetable tanned cowhide leather to produce her incredible pieces of art. Until a friendly visitor at an Art Festival gave her a piece of bison or buffalo leather. The single bull buffalo is burned on that piece of buffalo leather. Now she is hooked and has found a source for tanned buffalo hides. Stay tuned for many more pieces burned on this rich and historical material.
The Ranch’s original brand and the original cow # brand can be seen on the “Great Migration” piece.
After the image has been burned by hand with a handheld wood burner the leather is then conditioned with a mixture of bee’s wax and coconut oil.
