Pyrography

The Term Means:

 "writing with fire", from the Greek pur (fire) and graphos (writing).

History

 

Since the dawn of recorded history, the art and craft of pyrography

  has been practiced by artists of various cultures including the Egyptians and

some African tribes .It was also known in China from the time of the Han dynasty.

The Victorian Era sparked a widespread interest in the craft.

Pyrography is a traditional folk art in many parts of Europe as well as

 Argentina and other areas in South America.

 The technique that the artist employs must be used carefully, as images burned into the wood or leather cannot be erased.
