"The Fifth Element"

- Ceramic Art Installation w/ Organic Material Accompaniment

 In human evolution the fifth element, æther, represents our pure essence, where we become fully aware that eventually, everything connects. Cycles of life require the seed; the seed becomes a plant, plants feed humans & animals, & we, in turn, spread & feed the seeds. Earth, air, water, & fire, the elemental system, invites us to enter the realm of quintessence – the fifth element – accessible, when one has balanced the other four.
