PYROGRAPHY ARTIST LUCETTE JONES DEMONSTRATING AT THE TOLEDO WOODCRAFT STORE

Growing up with an artist mother and a woodworker father, Lucette Jones was always surrounded with creativity. Her mother did painting, sculpting and fabric arts, and her father “had some really cool woodworking tools” for his furniture making hobby. So it was only natural that she and her sister were artistically inclined from an early age. Lucette started carving at Age 10 and by the time she was in High School she became the resident “Women’s Libber” in the Woodshop. In that class, she built a chessboard from walnut and maple and made her own carving mallet from ash.


Through the years she has continued to hone her skills, building and repairing ornate frames at various galleries across the US and taking on commission carvings. She finds a lot of inspiration from nature and describes herself as “very focused” when she is working on a project.

In addition to pyrography, Lucette is skilled at carving and woodturning. “I have made quite a number of projects on the lathe and small projects like Shaker boxes and bandsaw boxes,” she said. She is often asked to teach classes at the Woodcraft store as well.

Not only can she woodburn on gourds, she can use them for carving as well. Notice how she uses paint to also highlight her work.

She has a whimsical side to her carving also.
