A story of pyrography

Meet LOU

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

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


After many years as a recreational artist, I began to lose interest in the medium of paint. It soon became apparent to me this was detrimental to my mental health and well-being as I had no creative outlet. 

It wasn't until two or three years ago I felt it was time to get proactive and look for a new canvas and with a long-term love for wood I thought I would try Pyrography - the art of wood-burning. It was tough at first but I persevered and fell in love with it. I have now learned how to add more detail and different methods to produce a range of burns. I have even added text as a different element.


So with this newfound art technique coupled with my inspiration of nature thanks to my Devonian rural and coastal surroundings, my passion was born. As an artist 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.

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

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