This series began when I was in grad school. My best friend at the time, Aaron Macy, and I talked extensively about creating a piece in the shape of a circle, which challenges the limits of the material. Soon after Aaron passed away from Leukemia and it began to represent so much more. The circle symbolizes eternal life and reminds us so delicately that our experience on earth is temporary, and at times too brief. But the foundational element of love lasts beyond our existence, and if we are fortunate, we leave added value and beauty to those we have laughed, cried and lived alongside.
