Painting With Molten Glass

Seattle artist Etsuko Ichikawa works in an unusual medium.   Charring forms and designs onto a surface with molten glass (the sort and amount usually used in glass blowing).  Video after the cut.

These works are glass pyrographs that are made by drawing hot molten glass, leaving the immediate charred tracery of my movement with the heat. It is a way of capturing a fleeting moment and eternalizing it, and it gives the viewer the opportunity to see a gesture.


This aspect of her work is also presented a performance piece call “Firebird”.
