The Artist - Ruth Baker

Pyrography (writing with fire) is the process of marking through burning and scorching the surface of the wood using a heated metal wire or naked flame. This in itself is very rarely seen and mostly viewed in the Country crafts. With this in mind I passionately pursue this medium, experimenting and developing my own techniques to truly push the boundaries of the Contemporary fine art field, which makes my work unique. Portraits form the basis of my work and my most recent woodburnings, 'Symphony of dreams' and 'Silent melodies', were inspired by my visits to Rome and Florence where I was so completely captivated by the power and drama of the Renaissance. Along with the attention to detail and realism I strive to incorporate into my work. I have been a finalist in the Visual Arts Open for emerging artists and a published artist in an American Pyrography magazine. I'm working towards a collection of similar figurative work and continuing to develop and refine this exciting, unique medium.
