It is a difficult concept for the mind to accept that the answers to the deepest mysteries can only be found between the lines.
To see more clearly, we must learn to soften and broaden our gaze. In the same way that the universe needed nothingness to come into being, lines cannot exist without spaces. Though it may seem that these inspired monumental ceramic works can be viewed directly, they cannot. For each of us sees through an invisible veil that is the total of our human experience.
