Etsuko Ichikawa quick Response & Teacher's art response

“A heart well worth winning, and well won. A heart that, once won, goes through fire and water for the winner, and never changes, and is never daunted.” ~Charlies Dickens

It was very interesting to see how Etsuko Ichiwaka worked with glass that was still in a more liquid state. I liked that she worked with sound along with her piece (Firebird) and thought it was fitting for the dancer to be dressed up in colors that would relate to a phoenix. On her project Nachi I thought it was cool that she produced her own versions of the water area where people would cleanse themselved before seeing the tea master. Ichikawa also is interesting because of her love of mist, ice and the forms that water takes on yet creates her piece with, essentially, fire. I'm interested to see what her future work will have and see if she'll incorporate a more physical element of water into her pieces alongside fire.


I'm honestly not sure what I'm supposed to say for this section but I'll give it a shot.

Seeing our teacher's are on display in a window was pretty neat. I liked the use of wire and how on the sills there were glass balls that also had wire weaved around them. It was just interesting to see the use of metal and wire combined with an organic object (a branch in this case) and see them literally interwoven with each other.
