This beech platter was sent to me by Lesley Lanman as a thank you for repairing one of our oldest pyrography machines. Her machine had been in constant use for 20 years or more! She specialises in celtic designs and will do commissions. Contact me for details.

Tony and Christine Witham The sycamore bowl was beautifully turned by Tony Witham then pyrographed and painted by his wife Christine. The begonia leaf decoration continues around the edge and down the outside surface. The leaves were textured with pyrography before painting so they feel like real leaves. The full size image is 79k.

The hollow vessel is 12" high, turned from green ash by Tony. It was gripped in the Coil Chuck. The rim and foot were textured with the "spoon" pyrography point. The sides were pyrographed and then coloured with dye.
Tony is the woodturner and his wife Christine is a talented artist. They are to be found demonstrating turning and pyrography at all the major venues in the UK and he demonstrates turning here at the Peter Child workshop at least once a month. He is a very active and hard working member of the AWGB. Christine can sometimes be persuaded to give expert tuiton in pyrography. Tony produces a wide range of sycamore blanks including cheeseboards, platters etc sold unfinished ready for applied pyrographic decoration. Ask for a colour brochure and mail order price list.
