Sally Burnett:

Now a professional designer maker in wood, Sally initially trained in 3D design and for many years specialised in the design and manufacture of hand blown glass vessels, panels and large ceramic tile installations, for both private and commercial clients. Since discovering a passion for wood, Sally has rapidly gained an international reputation with her lathe turned and exquisitely carved vessels.

Using mainly English native ‘green’ (recently felled) timber, her distinctive decorative vessels often have wide tops and small bases with long elegant curves. They are usually rich in texture created with pyrography and carving, many embellished with acrylic colour and silver and gold leaf.

"I am fascinated with wood, particularly creating work from freshly felled trees, timber known as green wood. A living material that moves and twists as you work it. It is a material which can be used to create both practical items and artistic creations. It can be manipulated by the artist but the many inclusions, knots and grain patterns often dictate shape and design forcing the artist to reconsider a piece during the making process. It is a pleasure to work green wood and a challenge."

Sally’s distinctive work has featured in many exhibitions, including Maison et Objet in Paris and can be found in several private collections, UK galleries and is becoming a firm favourite of interior designers and architects worldwide.

Burnett was recently commissioned by the Lexus luxury car makers to create a piece for their In Search of Takumi series. https://youtu.be/BiUgTU8mruA
