Stuart King, is from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, U.K. This is his second salon here in the E-Museum; it houses a sampling of his private collection, acquired during his extensive travels researching the rural past at home and abroad. This salon is cross-referenced in the Traditional and Folk Art Hall.

An artist in his own right, Stuart King combines pyrography, color, and piercing on his own beautifully turned wood pieces, examples of which are on display in his first E-Museum Salon linked here.

In addition, his own excellent website Stuart King: Artist Craftsman in Wood, offers the visitor a sampling of his many talents as artisan, artist, demonstrator, photo-journalist, and lecturer.

Stuart King was featured in Pyrograffiti, in the September–October 2000 issue of the Woodcarvers On-Line Magazine.
