Etsuko Ichikawa: Traces of the Molten State

Etsuko Ichikawa writes with hot glass on paper. They’re called glass pyrographs.

In the words of the artist:

“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.”
