"Blue Diamonds"

75.00

Sometimes while working, I think about the length of time it’s taken not just for me to complete a collage, but also the time for all the bits & pieces I’ve collected and added to the piece that were made by so many others before my creation even began.  Much like the formation of natural diamonds, which require high temperature + pressure deep within the Earth’s mantle, creations take their sweet time and develop when many elements work together.
