Beautifully Detailed Drawings Burnt into Pieces of Wood

Eben Cavanagh Rautenbach, artistically known as LeRoc, uses a soldering iron to create detailed illustrations on pieces of wood. This art of decorative burning is called pyrography or pyrogravure. When LeRoc first became interested in pyrography, he started drawing with only a lighter, a nail and a pair of pliers. Thankfully, his aunt gave him an old soldering iron and he has been hooked ever since.

LeRoc describes his style influences as a mixture of his graffiti background and a wonder of nature. Born in South Africa, LeRoc now lives in Scotland with a forest full of inspiration right outside his home. "It's this easy access to nature that keeps me inspired," explains LeRoc.
