 CANADIAN PYROGRAPHY ARTIST

Steve Hewer

It was the summer of '17 when I first bought a cheap wood burning set from my local store.

Newly retired and seeking a hobby, I sketched and burnt on any piece of scrap wood I could find.  After a few weeks, I was addicted.

No fusion of colours, no interpretations into abstracts, just sketching and burning what I see and trying to make it look real in sepia tones.

I upgraded my toolkit to improve the quality of my work.  That's me in the photo using my Razertip to create Jed the Alsatian.  That picture is now in Tasmania.

The maple hardwood I use requires high heat; over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit to be effective.  I call it 'sketching with fire.'   It takes a lot longer to produce a picture on hard maple over softwoods but the effort is definitely worth it.  Best tools and best materials and no excuses.

Creating fine pyrography to me is like escaping into a good book and not wanting it to end.  You know the feeling.

Thank you for browsing my art studio.  I hope you enjoy my work.
