Starry Lamp #1 – Daylight shot. My 2nd gourd lamp, created with pyrography (wood burning), and various holes incorporated to allow the inner light to shine through.
This year marks another year of growth as an artist. I’ve began teaching pyrography (woodburning) classes at a local gallery here in Bowling Green, KY, Gallery 916. The classes are going to be held on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. The classes are labeled under Learn & Burn: Wood Burning, and are meant to share the art of wood burning, while burning various projects. The next class will be creating this set of wooden candlesticks. So if you’re in the Bowling Green, KY area, and want to learn all about this awesome art form, then check out the Learn & Burn classes! http://www.facebook.com/learnandburnart
I’ve finally joined the latest push in gourd art, I made a gourd lamp. Just as in any type of gourd art, the possibilities of a gourd lamp are endless. It’s truly amazing to see the lamps that are created all around the world. For my first lamp, I chose to go with a swirl-type pattern, incorporated my favorite features, such as the carving, various patterns, and the quilt-like patterns that have come to be a constant in my work. The coloring is unique…eye shadow. My wife almost threw out an entire pallet of many colors, and I had to try before seeing material get tossed away (of course I love to recycle and reuse). I then incorporated various holes for the light to escape.
I hope you enjoy 🙂
I’ve finally moved up into the “website” world. I’ve been on Facebook forever, tried just a simple blog, and have been growing my marketing skills along the way. I’m hoping to continue to update this page, as I’m hoping to make it one of my steady communication homes. We shall surely see. But for now, here’s more about me…
As you have possibly read on the Home screen, I’ve began woodburning several years ago. I’ve grown tremendously since the Christmas ornaments I first made as my first projects. My current passions lay with creating gourd art, along with custom projects made for others. As I’ve grown, my skills and passions have also grown. I’m now at a point that I like to share and help others grow. In 2014 I’ll be having pyrography (woodburning) classes at a local gallery here in Bowling Green, KY. The gallery is Gallery 916, and the class series is Learn & Burn: Wood Burning. As of right now, the classes will be held on 2nd & 4th Mondays, at 6:30 p.m. The goal of the classes is to teach the art of pyrography through creating various projects. Each class will be a different project (upcoming class is Custom Clocks: creating your very own custom clock).
