The dichotomy and interplay inherent in music is quite fascinating. On one level the piece expresses the transition of music from the regimentation of the written page to the wonder of sound and melody, and is given life and emotion as it passes through an instrument to the listener. On a deeper level it addresses how music allows us, through no more than our breath, to touch the Divine.
The piece was created using stained glass, glass nuggets, wire, and copper pipes. Chosen for its dark, earthy appearance, walnut was sourced from a local sawmill to complete the piece. From rough cut boards, the wood was planed to the desired thickness, and custom milled by the artist.
