// Pyrographs
15 August, 2011  |  art

Etsuko Ichikawa creates what she calls Pyrographs by drawing with hot molten glass which scorches the paper creating an ephemeral path of movement and heat.

“I see this process as a metaphor of my daily life in terms of encounters and impressions relating directly to my work. Meeting someone, seeing some event, hearing a piece of music – these encounters are fleeting moments, but sometimes the impressions of these moments take on their own lives.”

– E.I.
