Last week I shot a job for Pyrographer, Peter Drewett. Peter lives in Wells Crossing, just South of Grafton. Pyrography, literally “drawing with fire”, is the art of burning into wood, leather, even paper to create an image or design.
Peter is nearing the completion of a 3 year project, creating 100 decorated walking sticks. The majority of the sticks are sourced from the old Nashi pear orchard on Peter’s secluded property. In the past Peter’s work has featured in the National Gallery and he hopes his 100 sticks will sell as a collection. Here’s a little taster of some of his works …. hopefully and exhibition catalogue and magazine article to follow
