Art, Born of Fire
Exploring Elemental Harmony with Flame-Painted Copper
Fire. The element sparks sensations of heat, light, and energy; feelings of power and passion. Its beauty evokes all the intensities of nature and our own emotions.
FireSmith Copper seeks to capture fire’s essence forever through copper, exposing the innate hidden properties of this metal’s ancient and utilitarian origin. We are enraptured by the shared characteristics of fire and copper, brought out by the intentional application of one element to the other. Copper’s luminosity, flexibility, and surprising array of colors are brought to its surface through our freehand, flame-painting techniques.
Firesmith Copper uses copper as a medium to explore all elemental harmonies found in the natural landscapes we’ve explored around the world: wind, water, sound, rock…in a word: life. As these relationships appear in our art, they speak quietly of our artistic process and materials.
