High Voltage Burn

All of the products at Cathode Innovations are handmade and follow our exclusive 15 step process to ensure a high quality product that will last though the years. Its starts with the 10,000V Lichtenburg process to capture the lightning within the fibers of the wood. A dual power supply is used to provide high power for deep burns and lower power for fine detail on the edges of the beams. This process is done a few inches at a time, a very detailed and meticulous process to "guide" the path of the electricity to make these incredible images. The electricity will ultimately choose the path, but we can nudge it in the right direction. After the electricity has been permanently captured into the wood it is cleaned, dried, and smoothed for the next steps.
