Denise O’Reilly of The Burnt Shop in Glastonbury “etches glass and burns shit.” When she needed to make holiday gifts on a budget, she opted to make wood-burned spoons for her foodie friends and family; they were so well received, Denise kept burning and went full-time in 2015. She calls her technique “grandpa wood burning,” as she is self-taught and purposely avoids textbooks. Denise uses a state-of-the-art laser that helps to create her professional-quality, botanical designs faster. Her pieces are functional for home and kitchen use – just as Denise prefers in her own home.
