— Pyrography is the art of burning an image into wood with a heated implement. The word comes from the Greek, meaning “writing with fire”, from pur (fire) and graphos (writing), and the process has existed since the earliest eras of known history, in Egypt and among African tribes. Although the technology has advanced, there is a direct line from the art of the ancients to the work found today at Art and Crafts Mudgee.
