Fire Is Their Artistic Element

The excitement for a small but extraordinary group of artists is building. As a very special art exhibit prepares to open the doors, this should prove to be the first of a kind. Andrews Art Museum in North Carolina is hosting what many believe to be the first ever, all pyrography exhibit. This show is special, not only because all of the artwork is designed by fire, but also because of the broad scope of artists who are participating. These artists represent pyrography artwork from around the world.


In Tom Vogler's Own Words

"Pyrography as a fine art medium seems to be a growing trend in the art world. Where it was once seen as a craft and snubbed by the mainstream art critics, it's now starting to get noticed more and more. It's a culture unto itself. I look at the insight feature on youtube that shows where the viewers are from, and they are from all over the world. The new work I'm seeing is phenomenal with so many styles and techniques."

Pyrography Exhibit In The Making

Artist Tom Vogler is the driving force and inspiration for making this exhibit happen. It all started with his dream and has blossomed into what promises to be a fruitful art exhibit. It helps that Tom is also a pyrographic artist. He is active in his local art community which happens to be Andrews North Carolina.

Did I mention Tom is also one of the Andrews Art Museum Directors? That is a fact. Tom got together with Annette Rawlings, Andrews Art Museum Director, to put this show in motion. Now just weeks away from the opening, everything behind the scene is a buzz. Many of the artists who will be exhibiting are also working hard to get the show up and ready for the public. They want to present pyrography, not only to the local community of Andrews NC but also call attention from the world of fine art. It is due time.

Making A Go To Exhibit Pyrography

Much help behind the scene, came from Danette Smith and Carlos Castellanos. Not only adding their own works to the exhibit but also helping to gather information, promote, organize and render the things it takes to get the show up and running. Artists who work to organize these kinds of exhibits deserve a big thank you on behalf of the exhibitors as well as the public who will be enjoying this unique show.

Fascinating! The slideshow was awesome. I wonder exactly how this is done? Is the entire piece torched, then scraped clear of char in selected areas, or does the torch flame have that fine of a point to get that level of detail? Or is it even a torch, or a "traditional" wood-burning tool, more like a soldering iron with various heated tips?

I see some have added paint, as well...

Thanks for sharing! Voted up and beautiful.
