PIMENTONA ART

Woodburning: Brother and Sister


Otavala handcrafts market was bursting at the seams with goods and handmade stuff.

Back in Colombia I decided to make my own Ecuatorian painting. However, I did not paint it but burnt using pyrography technique.

Woodburning or pyrography is type of decorative art where using controlled application of a heated object you can “write with fire“. The word pyrography comes from Greek pur (fire) and graphos (writing).
