 CANADIAN PYROGRAPHY ARTISTS

Guest Artist:

Steve Hewer

Ave Lycett Richardson

Ave photo.jpg

It was the summer of '17 when I first bought a cheap wood burning set from my local store.

Newly retired and seeking a hobby, I sketched and burnt on any piece of scrap wood I could find.  After a few weeks, I was addicted.

No fusion of colours, no interpretations into abstracts, just sketching and burning what I see and trying to make it look real in sepia tones.

I upgraded my toolkit to improve the quality of my work.  That's me in the photo using my Razertip to create Jed the Alsatian.  That picture is now in Tasmania.

The maple hardwood I use requires high heat; over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit to be effective.  I call it 'sketching with fire.'   It takes a lot longer to produce a picture on hard maple over softwoods but the effort is definitely worth it.  Best tools and best materials and no excuses.

Creating fine pyrography to me is like escaping into a good book and not wanting it to end.  You know the feeling.

Thank you for browsing my art studio.  I hope you enjoy my work.

Fire consumes, warms, illuminates and if it can be controlled, it can be used in creation to bring things to life; that's exactly what I hope I have mastered.

After being spurred on by winning art competitions with my wood burnings, I was hooked on this incredible art form with animals being the roots of my ever growing passion.

With permissions from the original photographers, I have interpreted the images to bring these pictures to life on wood.

It's my great honour to be a guest artist on the stevehewer.com website showcasing both 'Wild Cats, Big and Small' and "Mother's Love" collections which are available for purchase.

Thank you for viewing my art.
