Fractal Tree Frame Table

There is something pleasing about the simple, branching structure of this sculptural furnishing. Combining an ancient natural design with some of mankind’s most modern and durable materials, it makes quite a statement.

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”.

Visitors can walk on and through the structure of clear plexiglass, polished steel, and open windows which create an exhilarating (and occasionally frightening) sensation of walking on air.
