Pyrography is the art of creating images by burning the surfaces of wood. It's commonly done with electric tools made for that purpose. But Jordan Mang-osan of Baguio, Cordillera, the Philippines, takes a radically different approach. He uses the heat of sunlight concentrated in a magnifying glass to burn huge images into boards.
It requires an incredibly steady hand and lots of patience. But he doesn't need access to electricity to create amazing pieces. You can view more of his work at Visual News.
