David Mach sets his matchstick sculptures on fire

I had seen David Mach’s match made work a little while back, but what I’ve only just discovered is he sets his sculptures ablaze. Discovered when a client accidentally set Mach’s work on fire at home, they found it revealed a charred sculpture that looked similar yet felt completely different – even more impactful and dramatic. He now does this on purpose with other sculptures, with the actual transformation part of the show. You can see it here on the video.
