"Emerging Soul”

4” X 6” X 3”

Just as the butterfly uses a cocoon to grow and change, I perceive various stages of our lives as cocoons.  Living under our parents wing, going away to camp, and college are some of the most familiar times in our lives when we cocoon. We are protected, nourished and allowed to grow.  The part of this process that I have chosen to depict in carved brick is the effortless sliding into the cocoon and the more painful but necessary breaking free, as well as the rebellious escaping from what might feel like a parental hold.
