Aly Desbonnet is a Boston based artist working in Pyrography.
Pyrography is the art of using heat on a wood surface to create permanent burn marks from a controlled application. Each design is sketched conceptually, then hand-burned onto the wood. Different tree types, tool tips, and heat settings give me the ability to create intricate and detailed pieces, honing in on the meditative practices through geometric design. My inspiration stems from the wildness we hold within ourselves. I've tapped into this through remote backpacking trips, as well as my studies of landscape architecture and botany, finding a special importance in understanding the medium of my work.
