Pyrography is an art; painting or ornamenting wood or some other materials by making burn marks with the help of a heated metal pen. It is also known as pokerwork or wood burning.
The word pyrography is derived from pur which means fire and graphos which means writing in old Greek. In the past, it was used to decorate or tag tools, handmade objects or kitchenware. Dates of crafts with pyrography go back to ancient Egypt and Chine. It can be said that after the 19th Century, it became a solemn art done on blank wood or leather panels or sheets.
