Fire is viewed as one of the most powerful forces of destruction. It’s a process of change in which completely alters life both physically and chemically. “It’s only fire” speaks of the ability to conquer such a powerful obstacle and gain strength from life-altering changes one’s life must endure. It gives light to both mental and physical strength one must gain to fight through the flames of life.
The goal was to mark this important period in my life by burning an image or permanent change into wood using only fire. Using only the rawest materials, copper, steel, wood, “It’s only fire” should project personal strength, growth, and resilience. “It’s only fire”, It’s part the of the human experience.
