WOOD BURNING… of the divine

WOOD BURNING… of the divine

Burning wood is a ritual as old as time, but it is also a dangerous and destructive process. The object is literally set alight. There exists the very real risk of losing control of the combustion procedure that, were it to happen, could destroy the work. For this particular technique and for the risks that it entails, the pieces are created according to other design criteria that exclude, for obvious reasons, the textile element, but remembered when working the wood that was drilled beforehand. Controlled combustion gives the furniture another life, another look. The wood turns as black as the ace of spades and the fire’s aggression adds a palpable and indecipherable consistency at the same time, to such a degree that it remains tough to identify the original material of the finished piece. The charm lies in observing a work that is both contemporary and antique, timeless.
