Let me put you in the picture!
Just over a year ago I decided to set up my own craft business using recycled wood, leather and glass. My original plan was to get my business going behind closed doors, you know to see what direction I wanted to go in and develop my style.
I also knew I wanted to learn pyrography (the art or technique of decorating wood or leather by burning a design on the surface with a heated metallic point). So wanted to give myself the privacy and time to do that. This plan changed when I put one photograph on instagram under the name I had decided on – A Bunch Of Stuff.
Since then I have been super busy especially after a great but slightly chaotic first year, particularly over the festive period with eight successful pop-ups.
After this time I felt I needed to just step back and re-boot. For me this included focusing some on moving my business forward. On doing so I realised my style had changed organically from, as the name says ‘A Bunch Of Stuff’ which was an eclectic mix of recycled wood glass and leather products, to a more refined artistic direction of pyrography on sustainable or recycled homeware products as you can see in the image above.
Therefore I felt it was time for a rebrand as I have ‘found’ my style.
I am very excited to launch my new logo and name ‘New Ember’ (thanks to my husband) and say goodbye to ‘A Bunch Of Stuff’. The lovely Hannah from Cairn & Grace (thanks to Stacey at The Tribe for the recommendation) has designed this for me. She has been a joy to work with and made the whole process enjoyable. She completely understood my remit of wood-burning and has delivered this stunning artwork to compliment my work. Thank you Hannah.
