Artwork and Pyrography

Pyrography is the art of illustrating using a hand-held heated wire nib, called a “pyro pen”, which burns on to the “canvas”. Darker shading is achieved by repeatedly moving the nib over the scorched areas to give the effect of a “sepia” photograph.

Pyrographer At Work

Pyrography may be done on wood, paper, leather, and other selected “canvasses” and takes hours of concentrated work to complete. Mostly using Tasmanian timbers and locally handmade papers where possible.
