Pyrography (wood burning: drawings on wood)

Handmade Store: Country Roads Pyrography

Hello! My name is Jennifer and I own/operate the store Country Roads Pyrography. I am also the artist who makes and sells pyrography products. What is pyrography? Simply, it's the art of drawing on wood with a very hot pen also known as wood burning. The pen I have gets so hot that it melts into the wood, which leaves a black engraved pattern on the wood. I make a variety of wood products such as: key chains, refrigerator magnets, table signs, wall signs, coasters, picture frames, and Christmas ornaments. I've also done some custom orders where a person has built something from wood (shoe rack, blanket chest, farm sign, and toy box) and I wood burned their requests. Custom orders are welcome!

Pyrography is a very time consuming but relaxing hobby that I've been doing for the past 3 years and I love it! How did I get into wood burning? I became acquainted with such a small field because I had always had an interest in wood working since my grandfather was excellent at making toys and furniture from wood. I never pursued the hobby because I had thought that wood working only consisted of the things that he made like tables, candle holders, and dollhouses. Unlike my grandfather, I was not very skilled at assembling things; I'm more like my grandmother, who was great at decorating, crafting, and just making things beautiful (especially quilts). I didn't pursue the hobby of wood working until after my grandfather's death March 2016. My grandfather left my sisters and I his home and all of the things inside the home so the first place I went was his wood workshop in the garage. While going through his workshop, my sister and I found a wood napkin holder that he made with burned designs on it. The design was simple but added an extraordinary perspective to this ordinary napkin holder. So, I did a little research on wood burning, got my first wood burning pen, and began making different items starting out with simple designs like silhouettes then progressing to more detailed items. Pyrography was a way to pursue a style of wood working that I was relatively decent at! This was also a way to continue my family heritage by combing my grandfatherís wood working skills and my grandmotherís crafting skills into one beautiful craft.

And 3 years later I'm still going strong with it, which makes it the longest hobby I've ever done with the exclusion of running. I love wood burning because it is a way to continue my family heritage and I not only like seeing the outcomes of my products but the enjoyment and happiness that customers get from them!

If you're considering taking up pyrography as a hobby (or more) just message me and I'll give you some advice! It's a great hobby to pursue and I encourage everyone to try it.

Thanks for looking at our store! :)
