    Anything that becomes this permanent is going to be expensive to refinish when the new owner buys the joint. LOL. I agree with Woops, interesting from a distance but ugly up close. Just do a faux painting on the wall.

    Oh great, I can just see myself inviting him over to do some work and my house burning down.

    I agree with woops. Doesn’t look nice up close so unless you have cathedral ceilings….

  9. saraceru

    ditto. cool concept, but looks like smudgey fingerprints up close.

    This is wonderful art from afar and from up close. Don’t be so quick to talk down on someone’s creativity. If one of us got on a ladder and tried to recreate those pieces it would look hideous. Thank you TOXEL for bringing new forms of art like this into the spotlight! Beautiful!

    a guy in our dormitory (India) made this exact form of painting in 1998. Instead of appreciating as an art they punished him. Now I see this as an art form seems strange!!!

    I did not expect that you could control the flame that much. But I prefer the ‘painting’ on the wall of the tree, and keep the ceiling white!

  13. Alice

    Interesting. The effect is really impressive, especially from a step or two back. But there’s a reason they don’t make perfumes that smell like burnt perspex (and other materials). I wonder how long that scent would take to clear.

    I see how the art of burning has not really caught on to household decor.. BUT it works so well.. I am definitely looking into this
