Harnessing Solar Power to Create Pyrography Drawings


Artists are constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to their craft, experimenting with new styles, new media, new canvases… Certainly some techniques and tools are more widespread than others: pencil drawings, painting, and ink pens, just to name a few. Others are a bit more unique: creating art with food, making 3D sculptures with paper, carving things in pencil tips. Pyrography is when materials such as wood are decorated using heat and, subsequently, burn marks.

Jordan Mang-osan, an award-winning artist from the Philippines, uses a magnifying glass to transform solar rays into a laser point to etch intricate drawings onto wooden boards.

It’s a painstaking process that requires meticulous attention to detail and an abundance of patience. His pieces may be monochromatic, but you can certainly colour us impressed. More photos, and even a couple of videos of the process, can be found on his Facebook profile.
