about flamin' signs and boxes
Pyrography means 'writing with fire' and is the art of decorating wood with burn marks using a specialised Pyrography tool.
Around 6 years ago, Mick had a small business as a picture framer making his own mouldings in his shed. He could not compete with the cheap framing mouldings that were made in China so business was slow.
His uncle gave him a book on Pyrography and Mick purchased a Pyrography tool with the view to using the tool on his picture frames and framed mirrors as a unique touch. Flamin' Frames was open for business. After an unsuccessful stint at various markets trying to sell his frames and mirrors, a customer asked if Mick could make a sign for his property (like the one Mick had made up for his Flamin' Frames business). The customer absolutely loved the finished sign so, 'Flamin' Signs' was born. Since then, Mick has honed his craft to include original artworks on large timber plaques and also various sized timber jewellery boxes. 'Flamin' Signs and boxes' was born. Mick also burns original artwork onto wooden spoons and provides an on the spot engraving service on Olive Wood Hearts.
After 6 years of exclusively hand burning all content, Mick's elbow and wrist almost gave up, so he invested in a laser engraver in early 2017 to take the work load of his arm. Now, all signs and named boxes are laser engraved and he exclusively hand burns his artworks and calligraphy into his boxes, plaques and Olive Wood Hearts at his market stalls.
A new 2017 product is custom wood and wood look synthetic phone cases where he can laser engrave any image into the phone cases.
