Pyrography Commissions

I am available for commissions and custom work. Currently, the items I do wood burning on include bowls, spoons, boxes, frames, and cork.  Please take a look at my Pyrography Gallery for examples of what I can do.

Time Frame: Depending on the size and complexity of the piece and whether I have the item in stock, commissions can take from two weeks to two months. An estimate will be provided at the time of the request.

Rights: Private commissions do not come with any reproduction rights. If you are interested in buying reproduction rights or licensing rights please contact me at

Rates: Prices will vary based on the complexity of the design. Please see my Artfire store for examples of designs and costs.  I require a deposit to start, usually 50 percent.

Information I need to start the commission

  1. An idea of what you want. Please try to be as specific as possible. For example, let me know if you want specific shapes, symbols or animals in your commissioned piece.
  2. The size you prefer.
  3. What you want burned (bowl, spoon, etc).
  4. Your contact information and name.

Commission Process

  1. Contact me ( with the information listed above. Once I have this information and accept the commission we will negotiate the final price and I will give a time estimate.
  2. Upon receiving the 50 percent advance payment, I will begin working on the design sketch. I will scan the sketch so you can provide me with feedback. I will edit the sketch up to four times (more edits will bring the final cost of the piece up).
  3. Once final sketch is approved, I will begin burning. Once I have finished, I will again photograph the piece for  final approval. Changes at this stage are unlikely due to the nature  of wood burning, but I am willing to discuss options if the piece really isn’t what you are looking for.
  4. After the final approval, the final payment is due. When it is received, I will send the art.

Thank you for your interest in my art.
