Where Two Worlds Touch II, 2018
For the last few years I have collected rocks wherever I go, I brought some of these rocks to Baltimore with me when I moved. I did not have any specific end in mind with these, but I kept them because they felt important to me. Rocks are objects of great importance because they are old, they are something that has been on earth since the beginning, and I feel that by holding it and having it, I can connect myself to the powers that created it. I began to make shells for these rocks out of clear glass. These stones became something beyond my original concept of them. They touched on ideas of the soul and eternity, of adoration and reliquary, protection and futility. They were humorous. They became objects that I felt straddled both the physical and spiritual worlds. They became something far beyond myself.
