This third work by Simon Easton is a lively book loaded with ideas for decorating one's surroundings in myriad ways using pyrography. After a good technical introduction, the author  continues by providing varied, often geometric designs, for many kinds of wood pieces, and shows the pyro artists how to use those, adapt them, or even create new designs on other pieces.
Aaron Lynn, Kindle Arts Society
Yearn to Burn is a must read for the passionate pyrographer.

The common theme in Simon's work was a decorative and textural feel, often rich in embellishment or pattern.
