"Pyrography or pyrogravure 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.
A large range of tones and shades can be achieved. Varying the type of tip used, the temperature, or the way the iron is applied to the material all create different effects. After the design is burned in, wooden objects are often coloured." - Wikapedia
"Someone saw my work on another table... a bear and liked it so much she commissioned me to do a deer as a gift for a friend who hunted on the Manitoulin Island. Sometimes a project will "speak to me" and the deer did that. When that happens, the pyro work is easy. When it doesn't, I usually make fancy firewood."
