Using fire to decorate Matepe

So exited with the progress and the way this Matepe is looking, I couldn´t wait to get to the stage of derocating it. It is a cold, windy day and having not so dry wood, bringing the fire to life has become a challenge. I copy Sekuru´s chevron design using a flattened hot iron rod to print the patterns. An addition of a spiral design on the back is my own approach to make my Matepe look unique.
