Pyrography translates to "writing with fire", from the Greek pur (fire) and graphos (writing). It is the tradition of using a heated metal tip or wire to burn and scorch designs onto natural materials such as wood or leather.
In my images, I use the open flame of a blowtorch on a wooden surface to create images. By utilizing a "blow" torch instead of the traditional heated tips, I feel a deeper creative connection to the natural elements of "Wind" "Earth", and "Fire". In my initial artwork as a child, I utilized brown paper bags retrieved from the grocery store in order to fashion mock canvases. The wrinkled brown sepia like tones provided the perfect background and surface for charcoal drawings. They also provided a very natural look and feel to the artwork as well.
As I grew older, I longed to recreate that look and feel in my artwork through a different substrate and surface. My goal was to connect my artwork back to nature, and to utilize some of the elements found in nature to create this work. I began to study and research how throughout our history man has socially connected with each other through nature, and was instantly drawn to the oral tradition of elders handing down myths, legends, and life lessons over a campfire. It was soon after that I discovered some very old pics from the Civil War, The Trail Of Tears, and the Underground Railroad.
The pictures spoke to me, not only for the emotion on the subjects faces and wishing I could hear their story, but also for the actual paper the images were on. It was if the paper itself wanted to speak to me about how many hands it had been touched by in the last 150 years in order to get that weathered, almost burnt look to them. I was fascinated by these thoughts and decided to recreate this look and feel with Pyrography
