Dragon Flames

The inspiration for this home was two-fold: our broken A/C with temps above 100 degrees, and fire which can both warm and destroy.  This piece is constructed from tissue paper treated with ice-resin which creates a translucent effect.  An inner support was built out of a transparency sheet cut and hinged to shape, and flame-colored parchment leaves form a separate base and perfect accent.

Hot summer days, winter evenings by the fireside…What memories does this evoke for you?
