This is an apparatus for safe passage embodying implicit trust that everlasting unconditional love is triumphant despite the vagaries of life.The act of faith of sending a message into the unknown with the hope that somehow the universe will exert guardianship over its destiny. So it is when we enter the world.

We are vulnerable and fragile but sheathed in an invincible force of Love, which is like alchemy- a magical process of transformation, creation, fusion, indestructible and dynamic. The ancients understood well the oneness of life and death. Perhaps the amorphous offering of glass, birthed from sand, a material sterile (entirely clean), durable and luminous is the fitting medium to compose an Elegy to Love?
