Seeking Perfection in Imperfection - Order and Beauty in Chaos

Perfect examples of crystals like diamonds, rubies, and quartz represent a miraculous escape after spending millions of years in a constantly churning earth.  They are beautiful and generally extremely rare.  The vast majority are not so lucky as they document the violent history of their existence quite visibility through cracks, fissures, and impurities.  Generally these are tossed aside and given little note or attention.  However, when viewed literally and figuratively from different perspectives, these “flaws” often epitomize beauty itself.  These imperfections are the subjects of my most of my work.
