This mixed media wall piece is the result of nature's elements, time and pressure. The assembled composition was inspired by its own atmospheric surface juxtaposed with a pitch black background, together suggesting the sense of an infinite universe. I added an abstract, female, figurative piece over a raised circle depicting a Goddess creative source. The seven spheres in a row are formed stoneware pinch pots thinly painted with a blue-green glaze. They represent the Biblical story of the seven days it took to create the world.
