Pyrography 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. Pyrography means "writing with fire" and is the traditional art of using a heated tip or wire to burn or scorch designs onto natural materials such as wood or leather.

The word Pyrography, is of Greek origin, "pur" meaning fire and "graphos" meaning writing, which then easily translates to our more common name of "wood burning". It is the process of drawing a picture on a piece of wood, by burning lines into the surface of the wood in various shapes and intensities, with a soldering iron type tool. The longer you hold the wood burning pen on the surface of the wood, the greater the charring, thus the darker the colour and the more depth you add. In the old days they used just a piece of heated metal to add patterns to their furniture.

Woodburning can greatly enhance your carving project. Used to create fine line detailing or sepia tones of shadowing, with just one tool and a few basic strokes this craft will open a new dimension to your finished work.

Varying the type of tip used, the temperature, or the way the iron is applied to the material all create different effects. Light-coloured hardwoods such as sycamore, basswood, beech and birch are most commonly used, as their fine grain is not obtrusive. However, other woods, such as ash, maple, pine or oak, are also used.
