I really enjoy checking out the creative new commissions each month on The Anthropologist (Anthropologie’s art blog) and the latest addition, which goes live today, doesn’t disappoint.
Etsuko Ichikawa is a Japanese-American artist, who creates amazing pyrographs made from the fire and smoke of hot, molten glass. The Anthropologist commissioned filmmaker Alistair Banks Griffin to capture the process that takes place in Etsuko’s New Jersey studio.
His film is mesmerising and the art Etsuko creates is dramatic and seems to have a life of its own. This commission definitely satisfies both my inner artist and my inner pyromaniac!
