Craft & Design

Bold, Primitive and Natural

Using traditional methods of wood-turning, hand-carving and pyrography (a method of decorating wood with burn marks), Kirsty Dalton of Edinburgh-based Primitive Woodland makes wooden homewares and jewellery. Inspired by nature, her approach is purely instinctive with a focus on bold shapes merged with intricate detail and colourful finishes.
