Artists Burn Designs Into Wood To Create 'Fire Drawings'
By Syafiqah Omar, 09 Feb 2012
London-based design firm Studio Glithero creates art pieces by scorching designs into wood using fire, titled ‘Fire Drawings’.
Tim Simpson and Sarah van Gameren, the duo behind the work, first etch their designs into the wood panel with flammable paint, which then burns slowly after being lighted up.
According to them, “the protagonist in the Fire Drawings is a flame. It travels through time over a path of flammable screen-printed paint, multiplying or merging together, drawing, leaving a decorative charcoal trace as it goes along”.
Watch the fascinating process below.
