Welcome. I'm Brian Case, and I am a pyrography artist specialising in railway art and steam traction art, living in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

My artwork is always drawn on carefully selected wood, and while it is possible to pyrograph other materials, such as leather, I use wood exclusively.
Most of my pyrography is commissioned directly by my customers and while I do specialise in railway and steam traction, I will draw any subject you like (except people). I have been asked to draw portraits of pets, treasured classic cars, steam traction engines and railway locomotives, trucks, yachts and warships, to name but a few. The list of suitable subjects is endless.

The wood I use is either beech veneered plywood which is better suited to be framed, or a section of a log - examples can be seen in the Gallery page of this website. I keep a range of wood species in stock, but if you have any favourite wood in mind, please feel free to ask - I can get most British woods fairly easily. Just bear in mind that very dark wood won't work! I have successfully used Yew, Ash, Cherry, Beech, light Oak, and Lime.
Not all of my work is commissioned, and all my non-commissioned pyrographs are available for sale in the Pyrography Shop , or in my Online Shop where you can also view and buy any of the turned wood gifts that I make.
The beautiful county of Yorkshire provides an endless source of inspiration for my artwork, and all my newest ideas and gifts are displayed on the what's new page - it changes monthly, so be sure to keep checking it.
Prices for commissioned work do vary depending on the size, but as a guide, the smaller log sections start from £35, and a framed pyrograph on plywood will start at £70. The bigger the artwork, the more detail I can draw, but it will take longer. When you enquire about commissioning a pyrograph, I will give you a firm price, not an estimate, which will include framing if required.
I am more than happy to ship any artwork overseas, but prices depend on the destination, so please contact me for this. For more information click this link - commissions and prices .

This pyrograph of an American steam locomotive was commissioned by the customer. Her feedback comments are below.
The artist did an absolutely amazing job on this pyrograph! I requested a custom order and he was great to work with and sent me pictures throughout the process. The final product is outstanding- I would recommend to anyone that is looking for a unique and original piece of artwork that can't be replaced!
