'Primitive' is a line of wooden works produced by Scottish designer Kirsty Dalton. Each piece is individually hand crafted from various cuts of natural wood, shaped and then burnt free hand, using a process called pyrography. This approach complements the form and unique characteristics of this beautiful medium. The wood is sourced locally in Scotland and the artist primarily uses sycamore; its naturally light and blond appearance accentuates the burnt in-detail.

Utilising traditional methods of wood turning and hand carving, Dalton’s approach is purely instinctive; inspired by nature, with a focus on bold shapes merged with intricate detail, aiming to capture the essence of prehistoric art combined with more contemporary ornamentation
