A story of pyrography

Meet LOU

Hi, I'm Lou, a wood-burning pyrography artist hence the name of my shop is New Ember.

I produce wooden homeware and accessories with my artwork. My products all have a practical use and so my motto is ..


Not so long ago I thought I would try my hand at pyrography and bought a simple wood-burning pen. It turns out to be a new passion of mine. As an artist, I love to be creative but this method provided an exciting new canvas of wood. Since then I have learnt how to add more detail and different methods to produce a range of burns. I have even added text as a different element.

My range is made from recycled wood or sustainable bamboo predominantly, from chopping boards, door stops, keyrings through to candle cubes (holders) amongst other items.

The inspiration for my designs is Nautical and Nature-based, as I live in a rural part of Devon near the coast. As I add my designs by hand this makes each item an individual piece of artwork in its own right, using my particular style. This often includes wording to give an extra edge.

Thanks for popping by and feel free to browse my shop.
