Swirling gases surround the molten forms, moving through and around them, seeking escape.  The fleeting journey of the flame is captured on forms representing the artist’s perception of light moving through time. Inlaid patterns enhance the surface of the forms offering added visual interest, keeping the work fresh and alive."
