Primitive Woodland Line
Each piece is individually handcrafted from various cuts of natural wood, shaped and then burnt freehand, using a process called pyrography. This approach complements the form and unique characteristics of this beautiful medium. The wood is sourced locally in Scotland and the artist primarily uses sycamore; its natural light and blond appearance accentuate the burnt in-detail.
Utilising traditional methods of woodturning and hand carving, Dalton’s approach is purely instinctive; or primitive; inspired by nature, with a focus on bold shapes merged with intricate detail, aiming to capture the essence of prehistoric art combined with more contemporary ornamentation.
