Gorgeous Baroque Dressing Table Created by Wood Burning

In his Born 2B Burn furniture collection, Ukranian designer Yarsolav Galant uses the technique of wood burning to produce a striking charred surface. The furniture is exposed to short-term extreme heat (nearly 2000F!) which carbonizes the surface without damaging the core.

After it has cooled down, the furniture is infused with a special substance called epioftonol that Galant invented himself. It fixes and strengthens the burnt surface through a crystallization process that can take anywhere from a week to a month. The concentration of epioftonol used can adjust the color and texture of the piece before it is finally varnished and ready for the home.

Yea, this looks great, but now all my clothes are covered in black soot and ash stains.
