The Wind & Water Series
Two of the most powerful elements on our planet are nearly indiscernible to the
human eye, yet we are innately aware of their presence, their capacity to soothe
and destroy, and their ability to weave patterns where they touch.
Wind and water possess no intrinsic color, are clear to the point of invisibility,
and yet move through space. We see not their form itself, but can detect their
patterns and shapes only vicariously though the objects they affect. The trace
of water's touch over moss and sea life, the wind's passage over marshlands,
through wheat fields and the fur of a long-haired animal- these two forces make
their presence known. Their character is contradictory and fickle, encompassing
fragility and violence, placidity and turbulence.
leave their mark upon our world. We have discovered some
of their patterns and named them, giving them character and life: Kuroshio,
Leeuwin, Sirocco, Charybdis, Boreas, Agulhas, the Nor'easters.
The Wind & Water series was created to explore their influence through sculptural glass landscape.
