We are as encaustics.
Brightly colored. Responsive to warmth.
Fused by the heat of our experiences. Luminous.
Translucent to those who choose to look deeper.
Art within and without.

B.R. Hawkins

The word encaustic is taken from the Greek and means “to burn in.” In the encaustic process, pigmented wax is applied and then fused to a surface with heat. The result is a broad range of surface effects and a luminous translucency that is unique to the encaustic medium.
