The History of Burn Art (Pyrography)
Pyrography is one of the oldest techniques of etching words and designs into wood. It was already practised in China from the time of the Han dynasty (206 BC–220 AD), where it was known as “Fire Needle Embroidery”. The art has also been practiced by a number of cultures, including the Egyptians.
The British can be credited with the invention of modern pyrography machines. During the Victorian era (19th century), these new machines sparked a widespread interest in the craft, and it was at this time that the term “pyrography” was coined. In the West, a strong interest in this form of art is still strong.
Unlike other traditional art forms such as calligraphy or ink painting, ‘writing with fire’ has, unfortunately, lost its popularity in the East. We would like to revive the unique techniques of pyrography and its particular visual beauty which you get when a heated pin meets the characteristics of wood.
Practicing this special art, artist, Dave Sharp has been in creating art since the 90s. He is the co-founder of Agni Art.
