'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
Kirsty will demonstrate the process of pyrography during her open studio.
