FIRE #1 火を宿す EMBODYING FIRE

_A3A1222_s

Rubbing pieces of wood against each other to build a fire. Hitting rocks against each other to create sparks. Some say that ancient men imagined the flames to come jumping out from the pieces of wood and rocks. This is proof that they see fire as a living form than a phenomenon. Candles have been designed as a way for us to imagine them as forms “embodying” fire.

木々が擦れ、火がおきる。石がぶつかり、火花が散る。古代の人々はその様を見て、木や石に潜んでいた火が外に飛び出してきたと想像したらしい。現象としてではなく、生き物のある形態としての火。そんな見方から発想する「火を宿す」ロウソクたち。
