Art inspired by history.
I am an artist and crafter based in the UK and my work is inspired by Celtic and Anglo-Saxon art. I make everything from unique pyrographed wood pieces to original canvas paintings and pen and ink drawings. Drawing inspiration from history I create both original designs in my own style, and stylised renditions of ancient designs.
This piece is hand-pyrographed on a wood slice in the dotwork (pointillism) style and is taken directly from the central circular panel of the Sutton Hoo buckle form the early 7th century. It depicts two intertwined serpents biting the others’ tail.
