VICKIE MCCLAIN– pyrography & scrimshaw
Vickie’s interest in art, nature, and her love for animals have drawn her to explore many art forms and media such as Scrimshaw, Beading, Pine Needle baskets and her newest obsession, woodburning known as Pyrography. Vickie has done several collaborative pieces with Judy Chesnut to embellish her turned wood pieces and in the process became interested in the technique. She has exhibited collaborative pieces in the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art and also in three American Association of Woodturners National Symposiums.
