A fanciful, flower-like form lifts into the sky. The artist, who was previously a successful architect, began his journey into sculpture to find a more personal expressive form. His works celebrate one subtle yet powerful force that unites our world: the universal spirit. His practice reflects the light and uplifting quality of our common spirit through nature-like forms, imbued with a similar sense of joy.
