Layered reflections of figures inside/outside the window glass suggest an illusion that the interior sculptures simultaneously float or swim mid-air outside in a street full of city life. 
An exploration of the interface between public and private life, the thin line between introspection and illusion. Elements from a post modern "mystery play" (fallen gods, soaring birds, gardens (of Eden), holy grail, pilgrimages, leftover feathers from Icarus have now petrified with age), are “hardened thought forms.” The feet of clay are placed as if in a theatre stage relationships. Features nearly 50 figures sculpted by hand in porcelain paperclay ceramic.
