Experimenting with Wood

Pritam Mehta – a Pyrography artist, work is based on the concept of Wabi-Sabi, which essentially translates into ‘Asymmetry, Transience, Imperfection’. He burns realistic images onto unfinished pieces of wood using a hot metal tool and a steady hand. His artwork reflects his love for natural habitat and the wildlife. He has perfectly combined the art and utility in a manner that allows art to be created on items. In addition to making wall-art, he burns images on coffee tables, side tables, wood stumps, sandhuks, bed head-rests, and just about any item of furniture that you want images burnt on. A wide variety of woods with varying hardness, colour, and grain are used and every piece has unique physical characteristics, thus ensuring that no two pieces are alike.
