Pyrography or pyrogravure is the art of decorating wood or other materials with burn marks resulting from the controlled application of a heated object such as a poker. It is also known as pokerwork or wood burning.
The term means “writing with fire”, from the Greek pur (fire) and graphos (writing).
With a bit of focus, patience, skill, education (thanks to Lora S Irish and Sue Walters's books and tutorials) and with right tools you can try this art too. I tried and simply fell in love with this art. Shiv
