Introducing the talented Simon Easton of Wood Tattoos, Author of the new Yearn to Burn book
Simon Easton studied a BA (Hons) degree at Manchester Metropolitan University where he studied woodturning, silversmithing and pewterware. His pewter napkin ring set was one of the MMU winners of the Pewter Live 1999 competition, and was displayed at Pewterers’ Hall in London. He has won both a Precious Metals Bursary and a Grant from the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths in order to produce design concepts that he had developed. The common theme in Simon’s work was a decorative and textural feel, often rich in embellishment or pattern.
Simon got his start in the woodturning, silversmithing, and pewterware world after graduating from Manchester Metro University. Simon’s crafting focus and love of wood led him to the art of pyrography, which he uses with a contemporary twist to create richly decorative items and gifts. The result is a full-time business, Wood Tattoos. He has created a varied range of works and commissions. Not only is he a successful business owner but the author of not one but three woodburning books!
