Wood Burnings By Maria
Welcome to my website.
I am an artist who enjoys the creative use of pyrography. My tool is an electric wood burning pen with which I draw directly on sanded, unfinished wood from a variety of species of trees. The tree created most of the art with its unique grain, and because the grain of the wood ends up looking like a background scene in each piece, what I draw, I often feel, is merely a foreground subject. Each piece is made freehand and as I wood-burn I enjoy seeing the scene as it emerges. When completed, a lacquer finish is applied to all sides of the piece. My pieces are intended for indoor (not outdoor) wall decor. If you are curious regarding size or price for a wood burning you see here on my website, please contact me and I will give you that information. Shipping can be challenging and expensive, therefore it is usually easier if pieces can be picked up at one of my upcoming shows or meet-up location. Thank you.
