Walt Harned

ORIGINAL WOODBURNINGS BY

WALT HARNED
AN AMERICAN ARTIST, COLLECTED INTERNATIONALLY




ABOUT THE ART

The Word "Pyrography" comes from a combination of two ancient words: "pyro", meaning fire, and "graphics", meaning expression with lines.

Walt Harned original WoodBurnings/pyrography

are hand crafted, tranquil scenes on natural aged wood using nothing more than a woodburner. All color is natural no stains or color are ever added, other than the results from the wood-burning tool it's self. No inks or pencils ever touch the wood!

Each piece is one of a kind in existence, unlike paintings; Walt's pyrography can not ever be mass produce by way of prints. Because he can only create these works one at a time, these woodburnings are few in all. Never will there be an abundance of these fantastic works on the market, which means each piece is unique AND rare.





ABOUT THE ARTIST

Walt's philosophy;
"If you can say it, don't paint it.
If you can paint it, you can't say it".


Walt Harned has been a full-time professional artist for 40 years. He considers himself self-taught.

He spent a few years teaching in Ohio and Kentucky and has since devoted himself full time to fine art. He is a noted computer artist... published worldwide,
