Art Fx is a year-long series on Huntsville Doppler featuring Huntsville-area visual artists.
The Horizons Collection is a jewellery line made by artist Keri-Lyn Freebird (Burnt Timber Art) using upcycled and locally sourced hardwoods and featuring laser-printed original drawings.
“The Horizons Collection is a fusion of nature, artistry and laser precision,” says Keri-Lyn. “Burnt Timber Art’s ambition is to create unique and beautiful products using the elements of wood and fire, and through them, offer a sense of grounding and connection to the natural world. The Horizons Collection celebrates the diversity of our landscapes that are as varied as the people that inhabit them. Unique ecosystems that honor and thrive by their distinct communities and serve as a reminder that there is strength in our differences. The tones of maple, cherry and walnut woods show beauty in spectrum.”
“Treeline” is inspired by the forests of the Boreal Shield stretching from northern Saskatchewan to Newfoundland. “Waves” is an homage to ebb and flow, inspired by the swells of the ocean, meandering rivers and freshwater lakes that we call home. “Mountainscape” is reminiscent of the foothills of the Rockies.
“This new collection is a collaboration with Tom Morton of Morton Muskoka Chairs whose expertise in laser technology was imperative to bringing this work to life,” notes Keri-Lyn.
The Horizons Collection is available at burnttimberart.com, in the boutique at the Algonquin Art Centre, at The Shipyards in Gravenhurst, and at more Muskoka retailers to come in the very near future.
About the artist
“I create from a place in my heart that is deeply enamoured by and profoundly respectful of the forest and all its critters,” says Keri-Lyn. “From the humble beginnings of hand-burned wooden wearable art pieces, Burnt Timber Art has flourished into a multifaceted business offering wooden jewellery and accessories, customized artwork, and custom signage for businesses, home/cottages, weddings and more!”
