American pyrographic artist Richard Voepel from Vermont, U.S.A., is especially known for his wood panels of sailboats. His works stand out for their integration of the burned design with the wood panel itself, where the beauty and characteristics of the grain is a part of the composition. For more examples of his work, visit his Wood Illusions website.
