An unusual obsession with frying pans.
It all began with my Face of Jesus Frying Pan. I wanted a miracle in every pancake. I use a Dremel tool to grind the images into cast iron.
My friend Jacques says I carved Jesus to look like the bass player from Kiss.
My second frying pan was Marilyn Monroe. I’ve always liked Marilyn Monroe even though her image is everywhere.
For frying pan three I asked my boys what face they’d most like to see burned onto a piece of toast. Their choice? Darth Vadar. We use this one for making bacon. Bacon from the dark side.
The hobby sort of petered out when I realized you have to carve much deeper if you’re going to have any luck transferring images onto food.
