Pyrography (or wood burning) is an age-old artform where heated metal tools are used to burn wood, leaving behind a decorative pattern. Our skilled artisans, practising with wide variety metal tips and applying different amounts of pressure, create diverse effects and achieve different tones, from light brown to rich chestnut hues. The matryoshka dolls from this collection are both pyro-engraved and charmingly hand-painted with rich gold leaf decoration.
